    Exceptional 1804 Quarter, B-2, XF45

    1804 25C XF45 PCGS. B-2, R.5. The 1804 Draped Bust, Heraldic Eagle quarter is a scarce date, with a reported mintage of only 6,738 pieces. There are two known varieties of this date, with the present coin belonging to the less available B-2 variety, characterized by the high numeral 4 in the date. The B-2 variety was one of the last varieties discovered by Ard Browning when he wrote his seminal work on early quarters. In Early United States Quarters 1796-1838, Steve Tompkins reports this variety is rarely found in grades above the VG level, and only one example is currently known in Mint State, but the grading services have not differentiated between the varieties of 1804 quarters for most of their history. Tompkins lists a single coin graded XF45 in second place in his Condition Census for this variety, possibly the coin offered here. The present coin is sharply struck and lightly abraded. The scattered violet-gray and silver-blue toning drapes still-lustrous surfaces. Population: 1 in 45, 12 finer (1/09).(Registry values: P7) (NGC ID# 23RB, PCGS# 5312)
