    1822 Quarter Dollar, 25/50C, B-2, VG10
    Very Rare Variety
    Problem Free

    1822 25C 25/50C VG10 PCGS. B-2, R.5. The blundered 25 over 50 reverse ranks among the most dramatic die errors in the Capped Bust quarter dollar series. The engraver started entering 50 C on this reverse die and then realized his mistake, repunching a 25 over the 50 to create the proper 25 C denomination. The B-2 die marriage is very rare and difficult to acquire in any grade.
    This Choice Very Good specimen displays medium gray patination which is just slightly lighter on the reverse. The design elements are appropriately defined and centered on the planchet. The clasp shows, though weakly, as do some of the hair curls. About one-half of the eagle's feathers are clear, as are all the shield lines. The reverse dentilation is quite strong, and there are no marks worthy of note. This is a nice problem-free example that has just honest wear. Population: 7 in 10, 9 finer (12/12).(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 23RN, PCGS# 5333)

    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.
