    1818/5 B-3 Quarter, Frosty MS65
    A Lovely Type Coin

    1818/5 25C B-3, R.3, MS65 PCGS. Tompkins Die State 2/2. Both dies are clashed, with part of Liberty's profile impressed into the reverse field below the eagle's left (facing) wing. A die crack extends through the lowest arrowhead to the shield above the eagle's talon, and another runs from the U in UNITED, through the eagle's wingtip, to the olive leaves. B-3 is classified as an 1818/5 variety, since it shares the B-1 overdate obverse die. On B-3, however, the die is lapped, and the underdigit 5 is essentially gone. On this Gem example, however, traces of the 5 can still be seen on the final 8.

    Border stars and dentils are sharp on this high-grade coin, but the central Liberty portrait and the eagle's left (facing) inner wing show the usual softness. No abrasions are observed, and only a hint of golden color graces the frosty Gem surfaces. Eye appeal is outstanding. Population (both 1818/5 varieties included): 10 in 65, 5 finer (7/18). (NGC ID# 23RH, Variety PCGS# 411648, Base PCGS# 5323)
