||1907 $2 1/2 MS67 NGC. CAC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Residing in the cabinets of "Colonel" Green and Eric P. Newman, this coin has been unavailable to collectors for more than 70 years. It is a Superb Gem example, notable for its semiprooflike fields and subtle orange highlights over the natural, lemon-gold coloration. The strike is virtually full. The 1907 issue is the most common quarter eagle of the Liberty Head series -- heavily minted as the final year of the design -- yet Superb examples remain elusive. NGC has certified just five coins in a numerically higher grade. 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.
