Condition Rarity 1807 Draped Bust Quarter1807 25C MS 64 PCGS. B-1, R.2. The final-year 1807 was produced to the extent of 220,643 pieces. Two die pairings were used to deliver this issue. The present example was struck from a leftover reverse die from the 1805 (B-4) and 1806 (B-1) deliveries, so it is little wonder that the open fields display bold clashing from the obverse portrait. The devices are, however, quite sharp for the type, and the denticles, while not complete, are partially discernible. The obverse displays a similar appearance--suitable definition over Liberty's portrait that yields to isolated areas of softness near the periphery.
In terms of surface preservation, this coin is one of the most impressive Draped Bust quarters of any date available in today's market. There are no singularly mentionable abrasions, and both sides are richly frosted beneath wisps of golden-tan iridescence. An important coin for the high quality type collector. Population: 8 in 64, with a mere three finer (4/01).
From the Alex Highland Collection. (NGC ID# 23RF, PCGS# 5316)
