1899 US Liberty Head Quarter Eagle $2.50 Gold Coin MS63
The Coronet Liberty, as the design is sometimes labeled, first appeared on the gold eagle in 1838 but was also used on several other 19th century issues, including half cents (known as the Braided Hair type), large cents (the Modified Matron Head), and half eagles. The type has the distinction of being a design that was used longer than any other U.S. coin type with no major changes (68 years!).
The obverse depicts Lady Liberty facing left wearing a coronet with the word LIBERTY inscribed on it. On the reverse is the John Reich Eagle with shield with the wings enlarged to reach across the coin. Mint marks are located beneath Eagle on the reverse.
This particular coin is a very nice example, graded as an MS63 by NGC.
