Description

Condition Census 1804 Quarter

1804 25C MS63 PCGS. B-1, High R.3. First year of the Heraldic Eagle design and one of just 6,738 pieces struck, few of which survive in grades above Fine. Only 14 Mint State examples are known to both services combined. For years the scarcity of the 1804 Quarter was eclipsed by the better known and single-year type from 1796, a coin of similar mintage and rarity.
This is a very beautiful, indeed captivating coin, with gorgeous, iridescent turquoise-blue toning predominating most of the surfaces, intermingled with light gold at the border areas. The details are well centered and are framed with broad, square borders, and the underlying surfaces are bright, and somewhat glossy. Overall, the striking is quite good, but with some normal lightness on two of the stars above the eagle on the reverse, and the cloud above, is noted, but in no way detracts from the coin, as this feature is standard. Several mint-made adjustment marks are mentioned for future pedigree purposes, including several diagonal ones across Liberty's blouse and breast. Some less noticeable ones are seen at 10 o'clock to 12 o'clock on the obverse rim. An important opportunity for the advanced collector. Population: 2 in 63, 3 finer (3/05).(#5312) (Registry values: P7) (NGC ID# 23RB, PCGS# 5312)
