$2.50 1850-O MS 61 NGC

Full golden mint luster. Fairly well struck, using moderately clashed dies. Just shallow scuffing and a few faint hairlines. There is a small cud at the upper obverse rim, as struck. Only 84,000 pieces were coined. It is a rare issue in certified Mint State classifications. Only eight coins have been NGC graded at this level; three finer. This is a highly important offering for specialists in the Liberty Head quarter eagle series.
