Description 1835 $2 1/2 MS63 NGC. CAC. Breen-6141, Variety 6, R.2. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Wide AM variety. The 1835 quarter eagle is surprisingly scarce in Mint State for an issue with a large mintage of more than 130,000 pieces. Characteristic softness on Liberty's hair curls near the ear and some minor blending at the left (facing) shield corner and wing are typical for the issue. The fields are partially prooflike and appealing. Reddish-gold highlights are especially prominent and attractive on the reverse, while the obverse displays rose-red shades over the lustrous green-gold patination. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $15.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $9987.50.
