CHOICE SLIDER 1869-S QUARTER EAGLE

Formerly sold as Lot 3225 in the Newman sale (November 2014) where it sold for $1,763 and was described as follows:

“Ex: “Col.” E.H.R. Green. A strike-challenged issue, with central weakness evident on the majority of examples. David Akers wrote, “Most specimens I have seen were very bluntly struck and have relatively little detail on the hair around Liberty’s face or on the eagle’s right leg and neck.” Both the Akers and the Garrett and Guth plate coins show the same weak strike demonstrated by the present coin. There is possibly no actual wear on this example, with the near-Mint grade a reflection of the central weak strike. The eagle’s wing tips and the peripheral stars are bold. The coin shows few marks and nice luster for the assigned grade, confirmed by the CAC approval.

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 @ $12.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.”

CAC has approved 15 in this grade with 5 finer.
