    1837 Early Quarter, B-2, MS66
    Conditionally Scarce and Beautifully Preserved

    1837 25C B-2, R.1, MS66 NGC. CAC. Ex: Foxfire. An attractive coin with vivid iridescent toning on each side in variegated hues of plum, cobalt-green, and copper-red that gather primarily near the peripheries. The strike definition is a tad weak on the eagle's talons and arrow feathers, and on the left side obverse stars. A lustrous and impressively preserved Premium Gem example with tremendous eye appeal, especially for the collector who favors deep original patina.

    Variety: B-2, R.1.

    Population Data (7/14): NGC reports one example of the B-2 with none finer. PCGS has seen six in MS66 for all six die varieties and two MS67 finer.

    Heritage Commentary:
    Although a different variety, this B-2 quarter in MS66 is nearly the equal technically of the "Col." Green-Eric Newman B-1 of 1837, certified MS66+ ★ by NGC, which brought $47,000 in our Newman Part Two Signature (Heritage, 11/2013), lot 33357.

    Provenance: Purchased from Bill Nagle (8/2005). (NGC ID# 23S4, Variety PCGS# 39011, Base PCGS# 5356)

    Weight: 6.68 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
