1863-S $2.50 Liberty. NGC graded MS-61. An untoned example. When seen, the 1863-S Liberty quarter eagle is typically well worn. In fact, Walter Breen knew of only two Mint State coins, an appropriate comment with regard to the value of Mint State coins during the 40+ years he was active in numismatic research. Even AU pieces are quite elusive. This attractive BU has bright reddish gold color. Luster still prevails in wide open areas as well as throughout the major devices. Type I hub as normal for the issue.

For the advanced collector this is, indeed, a very "special" 1863-S. Few equivalent pieces have ever passed through our hands. 10,800 minted. Pop 5; 1 finer in 62. (PCGS # 7799) .
Estimated Value $9,000 - 10,000.

Realized $9,775
