Description 1879 $2 1/2 MS64 NGC. CAC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. The 1879 quarter eagle is somewhat scarce in all grades. The mintage was greatly reduced compared to that of 1878 with less than 89,000 pieces produced, and the overall number of 1879 survivors is not high. This is a sharply struck, lustrous example that appears to be conservatively graded at MS64. The shimmering mint frost highlights carefully preserved, yellow-gold surfaces. Census: 48 in 64 (2 in 64 S), 22 finer (9/14). 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 $1292.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
