    Brilliant Gem Uncirculated 1815 Quarter, B-1

    1815 25C MS65 NGC. B-1, R.1. Apparently the nation had all the quarter dollars it needed for a few years after the Mint struck 220,643 pieces in 1807. Then in 1815 production resumed with John Reich's new Capped Bust design. The Mint struck 89,235 quarters in this year before a fire broke out in one of the outbuildings, ruining the rolling mills and blank cutters, and idling production of gold and silver coins until late 1817. This is a splendid, heavily frosted Gem example that is brilliant throughout. Generally well struck, the only noticeable area of softness is on the highpoints of Liberty's hair. Lightly abraded, close examination with a glass reveals a few tiny specks of grease that were struck into the planchet at the time of manufacture. Exceptional quality and rarity. Population: 4 in 65, 7 finer (7/03). (NGC ID# 23RG, PCGS# 5321)

    Weight: 6.74 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
