1889 $2.5
One of many underrated quarter eagles from the 1880s, the 1889 is a scarce delivery with just 17,600 business strikes produced. The present example is beautiful with lustrous rose-gold surfaces on both sides. Generally bold in strike, only at the top of Liberty's portrait and the eagle's left (facing) leg do we see characteristic softness of detail for a quarter eagle of this type. A personal examination is suggested for the interested bidder. (PCGS 7841) Choice Uncirculated to Gem Uncirculated
