1838 Capped Bust Quarter, B-1
1838 25C MS65 PCGS. CAC. B-1, R.1. The 1838 Capped Bust
quarters are the last of the design, as all other denominations had
transitioned by this time to the new Seated Liberty motif. Only a
single die marriage is known for the 1838 Capped Bust quarter
dollar, a high number for this transitional year. The recorded
mintage for the issue was 366,000 coins, although some may have
been dated 1837. Some researchers believe that the Mint started
hubbing dies for the Capped Bust quarters during the year, which
would make the dies indistinguishable (Rea, Peterson et al., 2010).
In any case, the total mintage is remarkably high for a single die
pair. This richly toned Gem features a mixture of antique-gold and
steel-blue shades with frosty underlying luster. Although the major
design elements display excellent detail, noticeable weakness
appears t the borders. Population: 6 in 65, 1 finer (3/13).
