    The Superb Gem Eliasberg 1820 Quarter

    1820 25C Small 0 MS67 NGC. B-3, R.3. Boldly struck throughout and exceptional quality for this date and type. Toned with rich lilac-gray to the centers while the periphery is bathed in turquoise, amber, and russet-orange hues on both sides. Luster exudes from the stars and legends, but is limited by the toning. This type of toning was common to the silver coins from the Eliasberg collection, as all were housed in a similar environment for many decades. Examination of the surfaces will find splendid quality throughout, and the surfaces are as close to perfection as one could hope to find on any coin from this period. Identifiable by a minute tick in the field above the right wing of the eagle, close to the top. A later die state with the obverse crack from the 18 up through all the stars on the left. Not only is this the Finest Known of the variety, it is one of the Finest Known of the date.

    Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions.
