Description 1877-S $2 1/2 MS61 NGC. CAC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. The Type Two New Reverse dies were used only on Philadelphia Mint quarter eagles with the exception of the 1877 and 1878 San Francisco issues. The smaller lettering and arrowheads give the impression of a more petite eagle. This lustrous, fully struck example appears conservatively graded, with green-gold coloration and reddish-orange highlights. A short mark on Liberty's jawline is the only noticeable abrasion. 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 @ $12.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $1239.63. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
