    Description

    Outstanding 1818 Quarter
    B-3, Die State II, MS66

    1818 25C MS66 NGC. Ex: Foxfire. B-3, R.3. Die State II. The variety is attributed by the following: on the obverse, the very wide, equally spaced date is relatively high above the border, the second 8 is not centered under the curl, star 1 points to between the first and second fold in the drapery; on the reverse, the left end of the scroll is under the upright of the D, the right end is centered under the right foot of A, the I of PLURIBUS is slightly left of center of the second T in STATES, all Ts are defective at bottom right, and a crack extends from the edge through the lower arrow head and the two arrow rods above up toward the eagle. The die state is confirmed by the defective left feet in both 1s of the date.
    The 1818 quarter, from a mintage of 361,174 pieces, is readily obtainable in circulated grades. Even Mint State coins are not that elusive through MS64 or MS65. Premium Gems, however, are very difficult to locate, as evidenced by the 15 coins certified by NGC and PCGS, some of which are likely resubmissions. A mere two pieces are seen finer.
    The silvery surfaces of the amazing MS66 example are awash in full luster, and display whispers of cobalt-blue and light tan at the margins. A well executed strike brings out sharp definition on the design features. The dentilation is full on both sides, and neither exhibits any mentionable contact marks. Some light clash marks are visible on the reverse. This is an outstanding piece for a high grade type set. Census: 12 in 66, 1 finer (10/08).
