Description 1871-S $2 1/2 AU55 NGC. CAC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Khaki-gold color with orange accents confirms the originality of this popular S-Mint quarter eagle, which has been carefully preserved for more than 70 years in the collection of Eric P. Newman. The surfaces are smooth and attractive, with the few small marks minimized by brief circulation. Considerable luster remains. Slight weakness at the eagle's head is typical of this issue. 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 $1410.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
