Description 1882 $2 1/2 MS66 NGC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. The 1882 issue is one in a string of low-mintage issues from the 1880s. Still, despite a small production of just 4,000 coins, it is more available than its emission total suggests. Examples can be found through lower Mint State levels and in Choice condition for a price. Gems are seldom-seen, and this Premium Gem is the finest piece we have offered in nine years. NGC has certified only two coins in MS66 and none finer (8/14). Substantial prooflikeness graces the fields, and reddish accents complement medium gold color overall. The motifs are crisply detailed with noteworthy definition on the eagle's leg and claws. 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 $9400.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
