||1891 $2 1/2 MS61 NGC. CAC. FS-801, Doubled Die Obverse. Bold die doubling is seen on all reverse lettering, but is most prominent on AMERICA. Most 1891 quarter eagles are believed to have been struck from this die. As a date, the 1891 issue is elusive in Mint State, as is expected for a coin with a mintage of only 10,900 pieces. This representative is sharply struck with pale honey-gold luster. Light, scattered abrasions define the grade. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
