Lot 808
1815 Capped Bust Quarter Dollar. NGC graded MS-63 B-1. A choice brilliant uncirculated example, well struck, frosty and untoned. A tiny mark in the field below the E of E PLURIBUS -- possibly restricting the grade from one that would be a point higher. A glittering lightly toned Mint State with intense luster, a bold strike, and eye appeal that just won't quit! Only 89,235 pieces struck, making this one of the low mintage years in the interrupted large size, capped bust 1815-1828 series. Pop 8; 26 finer (PCGS # 5321) .
Estimated Value $5,500 - 6,000.

Lot 809
1818 Capped Bust Quarter Dollar. . B-3. NGC graded MS-66. Frosty and mostly untoned. Blazing mint frostiness in purest creamy white with lovely iridescence spanning the coin. A lustrous and undisturbed premium Gem, it is a visual indulgence for the beholder who may find himself spending. The peripheral devices and legends are mostly razor-sharp, while the hair curls and drapery show minor softening; the eagle's claws have marvelous incompleteness of strike. Ever so faintly clashed on both sides, as made. The most obvious thing about this remarkable coin is its stunning fresh look. Pop 9; 1 finer in 67.

In B-3, a radial die crack (as struck) extends from the reverse rim at 4 o'clock through the arrow shafts.
Estimated Value $30,000 - 32,000.

Lot 810
1825/3 Capped Bust Quarter Dollar. PCGS graded MS-64. Well struck and deeply toned. Deep silvery gray in color with russet brown accents sparkling from within due to the robust luster. This coin is new to the census and offers the viewer mint fresh luster beneath the toning plus problem-free rims. Well struck throughout, as well, and downright rare in this grade! Each of the obverse stars is not just full but exceptionally bold and complete, with the same razor-sharpness found throughout the reverse wing feathers. A full shield looks like it had been engraved into the dies with a modern laser beam it is show sharp and detailed. Compares favorably with the few known Proof early bust half dollars that occasionally make the rounds. Loaded with eye appeal, therefore, and never before seen so fine. Pop 1: None finer at PCGS. New to the Census. (PCGS # 38975) .
Estimated Value $8,000 - 8,500.
