    1828 B-1 Quarter
    Colorful and Sharply Struck Near-Gem

    1828 25C B-1, R.1, MS64 PCGS. Tompkins Die State 1/1. Always in demand by type collectors as the final large format Capped Bust quarter, the 1828 issue had a mintage of 102,000 pieces struck from four die pairs. Browning-1 is the most-available of the varieties and ideal for type. This is a Choice Uncirculated example that is tied at the lower end of the B-1 Condition Census.

    Delightful album toning at the margins displays shades of forest-green and almond-gold with reddish-tan and slate-gray accents at the centers. The smooth fields are partially reflective beneath the toning and mint luster glows throughout. The strike is sharp except at the left end of the scroll at PL of PLURIBUS, where the bust point of Liberty inhibits metal flow into the ribbon area and a light die crack exists. Population: 12 in 64 (1 in 64+), 6 finer (6/17).
