Description 1898 $2 1/2 MS62 NGC. The 1898 quarter eagle had a moderately low mintage of 24,000 pieces, and is proportionately more elusive in Mint State than are its 20th century counterparts. This piece displays a warm honey-gold hue, with deeper apricot overtones in the recesses. The devices are boldly impressed and the fields exhibit substantial semiprooflike mirroring. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $367.78. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
