1831. Large Letters B-5. SEGS graded Proof 63. Only 20 minted. Lovely blue and lavender-gray toning on both sides. With choice reflective surfaces.

Seven varieties in 1831. This issue marks the beginning of the reduced size series of Capped Bust quarter dollars. The designs were slightly modified, most notably on the reverse which is lacking the scroll and motto E PLURIBUS UNUM. These coins were minted each year through 1838 when the new Liberty Seated design made its debut within this denomination. These eight years featured 36 different die varieties, with four of those unknown to Browning in 1925. Proofs are known of all years, and are very scarce to rare. Browning-5 is distinguished from the other varieties this year in having tall double-peaked 1s in the date. Curve based 2, large letters, 25 low (PCGS # 5378) .
Estimated Value $4,000 - 5,000.
