Why add the 1878 Liberty Head $2.50 Gold Quarter Eagles NGC MS65 Green Label to your collection?

This 1878 Liberty Head $2.50 Gold Quarter Eagle was graded at the solid Mint State 65 (MS65) level by the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). The coin also qualified to carry NGC's Green Label which was developed in collaboration with Rare Coin Company of America (RARCOA), one of the leading coin distributors in the United States of America.

  • This example was struck at the United States Mint located in Philadelphia.
  • The issue has a mintage of 286,260, most of which were released for circulation.
  • The coin was struck from 4.18 grams of .900 fine gold.
  • This series was produced from 1840 until 1907.
  • This was one of the classic designs by Christian Gobrecht, Third Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint.

Long-Running Gobrecht Design

Obverse: The obverse features the portrait of Lady Liberty. She is featured wearing a crown on which "Liberty" is engraved. Her hair is gathered at the back of her head with a string of pearls.

Reverse: The reverse features a classic Heraldic Eagle preparing to take flight. He is protected by a shield over his breast. The eagle firmly grasps arrows and an olive branch.

MS65 Green Label Example

Coins graded Mint State 65 experience steady collector interest. Often the grade has a small distraction, hairlines, contact marks that are evident but not located in the focal areas of the design or the fields. Such distractions tend to be overlook-able and easily to miss. Mint luster is wonderful at this level. These coins have excellent eye appeal and an above average strike quality. The presence of the Green Label indicates that this coin was first selected by experts at RARCOA for meeting or exceeding a strict set of standards pertaining to strike, luster, eye-appeal, and toning. The coin was then submitted to NGC where it underwent further review and was certified and encapsulated.
