    1819 Small 9 Capped Bust Quarter, MS64
    Just One Finer at NGC, B-3 Late Die State

    1819 25C Small 9, B-3, R.1, MS64 NGC. Tompkins Die State 4/3. Four obverse dies and three reverse dies combine for four varieties of 1819 quarters -- two are the Large 9 type, and two are Small 9 varieties. Browning-3 and Browning-4 represent the Small 9 variants, although B-3 was actually struck after B-4 based on die state. Few 1819 quarters of any variety are known in near-Gem or finer grades. The mintage of 144,000 pieces circulated extensively, and few high-grade Uncirculated coins survive.

    This is a lustrous and sharply struck B-3 quarter, with bold obverse definition on the stars and portrait. The reverse is crisply struck as well, and shows only slight incompleteness on the eagle's talons and wing tops. B-3 and B-4 share the same reverse, which is known for wide repunching of the denomination numerals 25. The obverse exhibits its late die state, with a diagonal crack through the upper tip of the first 1 in the date that continues across the drapery and bust into the obverse field near Liberty's chin. Smooth, unabraded surfaces display attractive reddish-gold and bluish-brown toning. Census: 6 in 64, 1 finer (3/19). (NGC ID# 23RK, Variety PCGS# 402646, Base PCGS# 5325)
