    Description

    1825 quarter E Countermark VF 30 Rim Bump. (INS graded VF 35), B-2, R.2. One of the most controversial and collectible of all U.S. coins. The E and L countermarks from 1815 and 1825 are an enigma that may never be solved. Many theories have been proposed over the years about their meaning but none have withstood long-term critical analysis (including the lengthy attempted explanation we made in last year's ANA Sale). This piece has medium gray patina in the fields with silvery-brilliant highlights. The E countermark is in exactly the same place on this coin as it was on lot 7059 in the ANA. On this piece there is a hard edge bump directly over the countermark. (PCGS# 1692825)
