    1893 Quarter Eagle, MS67+
    The Sole Finest Example Known

    1893 $2 1/2 MS67+ PCGS Secure. CAC. The 1893 quarter eagle boasts a mintage of 30,000 pieces, one of the highest production totals for quarter eagles of the 1890s, which were all struck at the Philadelphia Mint. Nonetheless, Uncirculated examples are only plentiful through MS64. Gems are scarce, and this issue is rare in MS66. PCGS and NGC combined report only nine grading events in MS67, and of these the present coin is the only Plus-designated piece, making it the sole finest 1893 quarter eagle known (3/18). Frosty luster and razor-sharp devices are luminous and undisturbed. Rich orange-gold and peach hues encompass each side. Eye appeal excels. Population: 4 in 67 (1 in 67+), 0 finer. CAC: 2 in 67, 0 finer (3/18).(Registry values: P2)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25LH, PCGS# 7845)
