Description 1869 $2 1/2 MS61 NGC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Another example from the underappreciated group of Philadelphia Mint dates from the late 1860s. The combined "Colonel" Green and Eric P. Newman provenance means these coins have been carefully preserved and unavailable for decades -- a seldom-obtainable opportunity for collectors to add these exceptionally original and appealing rarities to their collections. The present coin is an attractive example from this remarkable group. Semiprooflike fields surround the frosted motifs, with olive and orange accents visiting the protected areas of this medium-gold example. There are no large marks or abrasions of concern. 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 @ $20.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $3172.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
