    Gorgeous 1818 B-4 Quarter, MS66
    Possibly the Finest Known

    1818 25C MS66 PCGS. B-4, R.2. Tompkins Die State 2, die crack from star 13-bust. This is one of the more easily obtainable varieties of this Capped Bust quarter delivery, but the awesome technical quality of this coin certainly sets it apart from most, if not all other representatives of the die marriage. This is a gorgeous Premium Gem with richly toned lavender-charcoal surfaces that display a ring of electric-blue peripheral iridescence. Both sides are frosty in texture with well centered, sharply defined features and only the lightest striking softness over the high points of Liberty's hair curls and the eagle's talons. With no mentionable abrasions, this coin is worthy of a fine reference collection. Housed in a green-label holder. For all 1818 varieties, Population: 3 in 66, 1 finer (11/10). At the top of the Condition Census for the variety, per Tompkins.

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
