    1828 Quarter, Choice AU
    Difficult B-2 Marriage

    1828 25C B-2, High R.4, AU55 PCGS. Tompkins Die State 1/1. Gunmetal-gray and autumn-brown patina embraces this inoffensively abraded representative. Light wear on the claws and curls confirms a short stint in Jackson-era commerce. The Square Base 2 in 25 C attributes the much Browning-2 variety. Very scarce in all grades, and the present lot ranks within the Condition Census.
