Lot 1384

1859 $2.50 Liberty. NGC graded MS-65. New reverse hub and much rarer than the old reverse type. In fact, the date has the lowest mintage of the Philadelphia issues of the 1850's with only 39,364 minted for both varieties. Well struck with blazing frosty mint luster throughout. Without doubt the most visually stunning feature of this coin is its brilliant, frosted mint luster. Full swirling luster on both sides, in fact, and exquisite in its perfection. Even this condition of the luster isn't enough. The supporting strike is just as strong, with clear definition to the high points. Pop 2; None finer at NGC.
Estimated Value $10,000 - 12,000.

Realized $9,775
