Extremely Rare 1823/2 Capped Bust Quarter

1823/2 25C VF35 ANACS. B-1, R.6. Only a single die pairing is known of this very rare issue. Mint records indicate that 117,800 pieces were struck of this year, but it is one of the two rarest dates in the entire Quarter series. It is generally thought that the vast portion of this issue was melted and the bullion then converted into other denominations. Only the most advanced collections contain an example of the 1823 Quarter, and over the past 10 years Heritage has sold just one other example, that being a repaired specimen in our 2002 ANA which realized nearly $14,000. This considerably more desirable representative displays balanced wear in addition to pleasing gunmetal and pearl-gray surfaces. A few ancient marks are found under the toning on the obverse, including an easily missed scratch under Liberty's eye. Quarter collectors in the know will have a keen interest in this coin, one of the most formidable rarities of the denomination. (#5334) (Registry values: P8) (NGC ID# 23RP, PCGS# 5334)
