1815 B-1 Quarter Dollar, MS67+ CAC
The Finest Certified 1815 Quarter Dollar
Early Quarter Dollars of the United States Mint Plate Coin

1815 25C MS67+ NGC. CAC. B-1, R.1. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Coinage at the Philadelphia Mint was limited in 1815 to quarter dollars, half dollars, and half eagles. The copper supply was exhausted the previous year with no new planchets shipped from England due to trade embargos during the War of 1812. The 89,235 quarters minted in 1815 were from a single die pair, as were the 47,150 half dollars, and the 635 half eagles.

The 1815 quarters represented the first appearance of John Reich's Capped Bust design for the denomination. The Reich design appeared earlier on half dollars in 1807 and dimes in 1809. Half dimes with the new design first appeared more than a decade later in 1829, and the design never appeared on silver dollars.

This early die state piece is the Early Quarter Dollars of the United States Mint plate coin and it is the finest certified 1815 quarter. NGC has only certified one other MS67 example, but that other piece lacks the Plus-Star designation of the Eric P. Newman example. PCGS has never certified an 1815 quarter finer than MS66.

The obverse of this original, richly toned, and eye-appealing specimen exhibits light champagne toning, with interior rings of blue, magenta, and orange-gold around a light silver center. The reverse also displays light silver at the center, with peripheral russet, blue, and gold toning. This is a stunning example of the first year Capped Bust quarter dollar.
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.(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 23RG, PCGS# 5321)
