    1832 B-2 Quarter, Richly Toned MS64

    1832 25C B-2, R.2, MS64 NGC. Intermingled rose, silver, gold, blue, and medium-gray show on both sides of this highly lustrous near-Gem, the blue predominating more on the reverse. Each side is sharply struck and nicely preserved. Minor strike weakness occurs on the lower reverse, on the branch and eagle's claws. A beautiful coin with rich luster and powerful eye appeal.

    Variety: B-2, R.2. The two varieties for the year share a common obverse, with the reverse on the B-2 showing the 2 in the denomination mostly left of the fletchings. The reverse shows large letters recut over small letters, the anomaly visible on several letters of UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. A small die crack connects stars 13 and 12.

    Population Data (9/15): For the year 1832, NGC shows 16 submissions in MS64 (one MS64+) with four finer -- three MS65 and one MS66. PCGS reports 13 in MS64 and three MS65 finer.

    Heritage Commentary: Even though this is a supposedly "available" variety, collectors will have a difficult time finding a higher-grade example than this exceptional piece -- or a nicer-looking one, for that matter. The MS65 NGC ex: Newman example brought $18,800 in our November 2013 Signature auction, lot 33351.

    Provenance: Purchased privately from David Lawrence (11/2001). (NGC ID# 23RX, Variety PCGS# 38988, Base PCGS# 5351)

    Weight: 6.74 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
