||1857 $2 1/2 MS63 NGC. CAC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Brilliant mint luster over frosted, honey-gold surfaces signals the Select Mint State condition of this conditionally scarce quarter eagle. The strike is bold everywhere but stars 1 and 2, and also at the left (facing) wing tip opposite the two weak stars. Perhaps the dies were slightly misaligned. The fields are smooth and attractive with no significant marks. 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 @ $10.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
