    1831 Small Letters Quarter, MS64
    Rare Browning-3 Variety

    1831 25C Small Letters, B-3, R.5, MS64 PCGS. CAC. B-3 is a rare die variety, and it is very rare in Uncirculated grades. The 2008 Tompkins reference lists a Condition Census topped by an unconfirmed MS62 example and a scratched and tooled Uncirculated details specimen. In September 2015, Heritage auctioned an NGC MS65 Prooflike example, and a PCGS MS65 appeared in our March 2013 Signature, but the present well-preserved piece could qualify as the third-finest known for the B-3 marriage. It is fully struck and satiny with dappled tan-brown and gunmetal-blue toning.
    Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 4/2016), lot 3324, which realized $7,050. (NGC ID# 23RW, Variety PCGS# 38982, Base PCGS# 5348)

    Weight: 6.74 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
