    PR61 1873 Quarter Eagle, Mintage 25 Pieces

    1873 $2 1/2 Closed 3 PR61 PCGS. The proof 1873 quarter eagles come only in the Closed 3 style, while the circulation strikes appear in both Open 3 and Closed 3 varieties. This example is one of only 25 recorded proofs made for the year, a coin that would have appealed to famous dealer-researcher Harry X Boosel, "Mr. 1873." A few contact marks on the portrait and more heavily in the right obverse field, behind the neck, account for the grade on this piece. The reverse is choice for the grade. This is a proof issue that seldom appears in our sales, and astute collectors will take notice of this piece, with its orange-gold, lustrous surfaces. Population: 1 in 61, 7 finer (10/10).(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 287U, PCGS# 7899)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
