Description 1838 $2 1/2 MS60 NGC. Breen-6146, Variety 19, R.2. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Collectors seeking Mint State examples of the six issues in a date set of Classic Head quarter eagles will have no trouble finding the first three issues, but will be challenged completing the set with the last three issues, including the 1838. Traces of original mint luster remain in the relief areas. The motifs are uniformly well-struck with a touch of softness over the stars, and a few wispy marks and scattered ticks limit the grade. This is an excellent Uncirculated Classic Head example for type purposes. 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 @ $17.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $2820.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
