    1834 B-4 Quarter, MS66
    Probably the Second Finest Known

    1834 25C B-4, R.1, MS66 PCGS. A stunning Premium Gem 1834 B-4 quarter, this piece is probably the second finest known survivor from the B-4 die pair, and it ranks among the best 1834 quarters of any die variety. The design elements are boldly defined, and the surfaces exhibit frosty silver luster with lovely peripheral blue and gold toning on the obverse, and light peripheral gold toning on the reverse. The toning is reminiscent of coins from old collections such as the Eliasberg collection, although this piece is not from that collection that had a proof strike of the B-4.

    PCGS has certified only four MS66 1834 quarters of all varieties and NGC has seen just one similar grade example (11/19). The high water mark for the 1834 B-4 quarter is an uncertified example graded MS67 that appeared in Superior's session of Auction '90. (NGC ID# 23RZ, Variety PCGS# 38995, Base PCGS# 5353)

    Weight: 6.74 grams

    Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper
