Description & Analysis

A mere 4,000 mint state and 67 proof gold $2.5 quarter eagles were struck at the Philadelphia Mint in 1882. With such a low mintage of business strike coins, examples are quite rare to find today, especially in gem. Proofs examples are even scarcer, as evidenced by the fact that NGC has graded only 13 examples to date. (11/2016)
