    Description

    Brilliant Gem 1831 B-2 Quarter, MS65

    1831 25C Small Letters MS65 PCGS. B-2, R.2. A highly lustrous Gem, this piece has brilliant silver luster with satiny surfaces and no evidence of toning on either side. Most of the design motifs are sharply detailed, although the upper obverse and lower reverse are blunt, with parts of the denomination almost entirely absent. The obverse is perfect with no evidence of clash marks, die cracks, or lapping. The reverse has a series of peripheral die cracks through the denomination and nearly the entire legend. Only the A and M in AMERICA are not joined to other letters by die cracks. This piece meets the requirements for Breen's Die State III in his revision of Browning, and is just shy of the B-2c die state recorded by Jules Reiver. Population: 14 in 65, 4 finer (3/07).(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 23RW, PCGS# 5348)

    Weight: 6.74 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
