1821 Quarter B-6 R7 PCGS VF-30
The 2nd rarest die variety in the Bust Quarter series, after the 1837 B-6. Which means that it is rarer than both 1827 varieties, the 1823/2, the 1822 25/50, the 1806 B-8 and the 1836 B-5. And this coin is a nice quality coin, a nice medium grey, with a few minor pinscratches, which were not bother PCGS. The 94th (of 96) die variety of Bust Quarters I have handled. We have posted this coin at our best price. Was $58,000.

1823/2 Quarter PCGS VG-8
Pedigreed to the Eliasberg Collection, as it has the rim nick by the 2nd arrowhead, although "Eliasberg" is not on the holder. One of the legendary rarities in the 19th century Federal series. What could be better than a very rare coin, with the ultimate pedigree - - Eliasberg! The coin is #18 in the Tompkins book, and the pedigree chain, courtesy of researchers Steve Tompkins and Karl Moulton, is: 1880 - Woodward sale, sold by Ferguson Haines, described as being foundin circulation in Maine; it is believed that Clapp bought it at the 1880 sale and held it until his collection was sold to Eliasberg in 1947; H.R. Lee sale 1947 (not sold); New Netherlands sale 1957; Miles Mewton owned it and sold it via Rarcoa sale 1970; unknown owner; Stack's sale 2007; Harry Laibstain 2008; to Rich Uhrich. Thus, since 1880 there have been exactly four opportunities to purchase this coin! It has been a true pleasure to own this coin, but now it is time to let someone else have a chance to own it. There are a few high grade 1823/2 quarters that have sold recently, and some Good and lower or damaged coins, but a nice VG 1823/2 is a difficult coin to locate.
