Capped Bust Quarters


The Alaska consignor is a top numismatist concerning Capped Bust coinage and well understands the importance of natural toning. Each piece sports that original gray patina with the 1835 having some olive hues. Personally, reverse strikes are important on Capped Bust quarters and I need to see sharp feathers including the eagle's neck. The Alaska pieces are quite satisfying in that regard.
