Description 1882 $2 1/2 MS63 NGC. CAC. The days of large quarter eagle mintages ended in 1880 and did not return until the following decade, providing collectors with a challenging run of Philadelphia dates to test both their perseverance and their resources. Just 4,000 pieces were minted of the 1882 issue, although enough were saved to make the date attainable for most collectors. This Select Uncirculated example is semiprooflike (the dies retained their polish over the entire mintage) and the strike is bold on all of the motifs. A small amount of field chatter over the reflective, medium-gold surfaces accounts for the assigned grade. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $2585.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
