    Description

    Pleasing 1886 Quarter Eagle, PR55

    1886 $2 1/2 PR55 NGC. A mere 88 proof quarter eagles were struck in 1886. Jeff Garrett and Ron Guth (2006) suggest that perhaps 30 to 40 examples are known in all grades. NGC and PCGS have graded close to 60 coins, a number of which are likely resubmissions or crossovers. The crisply defined, frosty design elements of this PR55 offering yield moderate contrast with the reflective fields. Just a few minuscule marks are visible on the peach-gold surfaces. Pleasing overall eye appeal. Census: 1 in 55, 2 finer (6/09).
    From The R.M. Phillips Limited Partnership Collection.
    (Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 2889, PCGS# 7912)
