Capped Bust  1824/2 1824/2

Choice $1475 Near-Gem Preservation, Gray with Peripheral Gold, Notable Eye Appeal. A single die pair struck only 16,000 quarters dated 1824. There are no Mint records of any deliveries during that year, therefore researchers believe the issue was included in the final deliver of 1823. CAC has approved 58 in all grades with most in lower circulated grades. This new example garners a near-gem quality rating was the surfaces are very well preserved while bright light coloration is superb. Natural coin gray toning provide a contrasting backdrop for peripheral golds. The reverse is quite special with its center rose hues. If you wish to own lower grade early quarters with the all important green bean, this coin is for you. Housed in PCGS Gen 5.0 (2015) holder with CAC approval.

Choice $385 Crusty Gray Toning, Choice Surfaces, Typical Strike. "Crusty" immediately comes to mind when first viewing this well preserved 1831 B-2 Capped Bust quarter. The obverse skin is quite thick and forms an undisturbed layer across devices and fields. The lighter toned reverse offers steely luster and golden overtones. There are a few well hidden field marks seen with a 10x. A solid piece that warrants a GFRC-Choice quality rating. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder. A new buyback that returns to the price list.

Choice $2175 New June 9! Rarest 1834 Die Pairting, Steely Luster, Gray Patina, Choice Surfaces, Lakeland Collection. Consignor Pricing Reduction. The just released Lakeland Collection lot is the rarest of the five 1834 die pairings per the Browning research (B-5) with an R5 rarity rating. As significant as the rarity is, the piece is a fine example with choice original surfaces. A bright light session exposes steely fields that are consistent on both sides, yet another validation of strict originality. Toning is a light gray with a mottled texture. This lot is ideal for those assembling a collection of rare die varieties across the early silver coinage spectrum. Housed in new large font NGC holder. The label captures the B-5 die variety attribution.
