1805
B-4, R.4
F-12, NOT certified
J-1805-01, Price:$1,000
Grey patina has become overlaid by lavender-grey and cobalt hues that stroll through the fields and provide surprisingly decent eye-appeal. Trivial old little scribbles and contact marks are typical of the grade level, and the motto on the reverse is mostly legible. A strong, even rim bears completion around both sides.

VF-35, NOT certified
J-1805-02, Price:$2,750

1806/5
B-1
VG-10, NOT certified
J-1806-01, Price:$900
Mintage: 206,124. VG-10 is the pinpoint accurate grade for this overdate quarter, taking into account partial detail within Liberty's hair and a surprisingly near-complete motto on the reverse. And the demeanor could hardly be nicer as an original coin, with classic dove-grey patina that embraces the devices and slowly takes on slightly bluish prominence toward the outer fields. A great coin for the grade.
1806/5
B-1
VG-8, NOT certified
J-1806-02, Price:$725
Mintage: 206,124. The reverse seems to be naturally toned, but one could argue that the obverse has been wiped or lightly cleaned. That side shows somewhat pale bluish-grey patina with a bit of glossy texture and some small scribbles at Liberty's upper portrait.
1806
B-3
VG-8, NOT certified
J-1806-33, Price:$625
Mintage: 206,124. Liberty's portrait looks surprisingly bold for the grade, which would get some higher overall consideration if not for rim weakness about half way around the obverse. This is how B-3 comes struck, of course, and at least the reverse rim shows completion throughout. Lovely vintage surfaces show a pleasing dark accent tracing the portrait and adding bold character to the obverse side.
1806
B-9
F-15, NOT certified
J-1806-34, Price:$1,325
Mintage: 206,124. Utterly attractive original character shows some delicate rouge tint throughout each side to go along with classic dove-grey and graphite contrasts. Strongly defined for the bold details, the lack of separation within the finer hair strands prevents consideration for very-fine, but this hands-down a nice large-planchet quarter.
1806
B-9
F-12, NOT certified
J-1806-35, Price:$1,000
Mintage: 206,124. Vintage surfaces exude the type of natural coloration that most astute early quarter specialists are looking for. Technical grade may actually exceed the assigned F-12, since the reverse actually displays tangible evidence of luster in the best protected areas, but the shattered die for B-9 LDS that resulted in poor strikes is at least partly to blame for weak peripheral sharpness seen throughout.
1806
B-3
VG-10, NOT certified
J-1806-36, Price:$750
Mintage: 206,124. Devices offer boldly outlined major details, and a bit of linear detail can be seen within Liberty's hair. The reverse motto cannot be read, but that is always the case for B-3 even in middle grades. Not even a single contact mark bears mention, but a few wispy dark hairlines can be seen here and there.
1806
B-3
NGC VF-30
J-1806-38, Price:$2,700
Just on the cusp of very-good, both rims offer bold completeness, and RIBUS UNUM can be read on the reverse. Nice and original, with no distractions and certainly no signs of cleaning.
1807

G-6+, NOT certified
J-1807-01, Price:$425
The usual shallow strike seems to be at least somewhat responsible for shallow details, along with modest wear, of course. Several ancient, narrow hairlines cross over the reverse and would have avoided mention had they numbered just one or two fewer.
1807

VF-30, NOT certified
J-1807-02, Price:$2,350
Mintage: 220,643. Intriguing bronze-rouge touches all the highpoint design elements, contrasting with perfect dove-grey in the fields. While not the usual 'ideal' color scheme, the contrast still goes some way toward elevating apparent sharpness. The entire surface displays lovely smoothness, amazingly free from any noticeable contact marks.
1807
B-2
VF-30, NOT certified
J-1807-04, Price:$2,300
Strangely attractive, contrast results from medium tan devices being set of against mulberry-grey fields.
1807
B-1
AU-50, NOT certified
J-1807-05, Price:$5,500
Very strong, bold details features extensive delineation of even the finest design elements. Plenty of luster roams beneath iron-almond patina on both sides. A fresh, original coin with considerable eye-appeal at the AU level.
1815
B-1
VG-8, NOT certified
J-1815-01, Price:$400
This is a decent, seemingly original example of the key date bust quarter - clear of any damage, crisply defined, and right at a grade level that's reasonably affordable to the enthusiast. No problems at all can be reported except, of course, for significant wear affecting both sides. The very low-contrast presentation may not enhance the boldness of details any, but there is always a shortage of nicer 1815 quarters to go around for enthusiasts.
1815
B-1
VF-20, NOT certified
J-1815-02, Price:$775
Seemingly original surface displays a rather ideal shade of grey color, just a bit on the darker side of 'medium', and augmented slightly by soft beige accents on the highpoints of the devices. Neither side shows any contact marks of note, although we do call attention to delicate striations across the cheek, evidently old circulation characteristics. A pleasing blend of preserved surfaces, generous detail and a pleasing 'look' for a two-hundred year old silver coin.
1815
B-1
EF-40, NOT certified
J-1815-07, Price:$2,200
Deeply original, each side exhibits attractive charcoal-tan patina and touches of lighter pecan accents. Superb sharpness retains most of the original striking detail, with only consistent, light wear seen throughout.
1815
B-1
EF-40, NOT certified
J-1815-08, Price:$2,200
Mintage: 361,174. Spectacular eye-appeal results from an early quarter with faint luster, a clean 'arm's length' appearance, and utterly crisp definition. One must use a loupe to discover some very shallow old scratches branching off into the obverse left field, and they are well toned enough as to be rendered otherwise invisible. Steel-blue toning mingles with portions of rust-gold to supply the excellent appearance.
1818/5
B-1, mds
F-15, NOT certified
J-1818-02, Price:$400
Exquisite, original example that pushes hard toward the VF level. In this die state, the underdigit can still be easily seen with normal magnification.
1818/5
B-3
VF-20, NOT certified
J-1818-04, Price:$600
No text description has been provided for this coin, and it is NOT certified. Please see image.
1806
B-2
NGC F-15
J-1818-09, Price:$400
Unquestionably a borderline VF quarter, as some original mint luster actualy still lurks around the stars! Sharp as can be for only the Fine grade level.
1818
B-4
VF-25, NOT certified
J-1818-58, Price:$800
Pleasing original surface quality exhibits no marks aside from a tiny linear hit just right of the portrait.
1818
B-10, DS3
VF-30, NOT certified
J-1818-62, Price:$1,050
Mintage: 361,174. The die line extending right from S2 identifies the obverse; 'I' in the scroll lines up between AT. Surprising luster ventures from the field beneath Liberty's bust, and the obverse displays more than a passing semblance of album tone, although the colors are a bit reversed, with turquoise dominating the left field and graduating into chartreuse and salmon-gold toward the rim.
1818
B-2
VF-35, NOT certified
J-1818-70, Price:$1,250
Mintage: 361,174. A little too pale to be considered fully original, the assigned VF-35 represents a slight downgrade from obvious extremely-fine details. A singular thin mark in the obverse right field seems to be the only notable mark.
1818
B-8
EF-40, NOT certified
J-1818-75, Price:$1,650
Perhaps delicately cleaned a long time ago, the devices now sport pale pecan-gold toning to contrast with some interesting subtle bluish tint in the fields. Bold major details remain.
1818
B-2
AU-50, NOT certified
J-1818-80, Price:$2,100
Beautiful, orignal medium-grey layers the modestly lustrous surface. Obviously very well detailed, as expected of the AU grade level, showing very sharp feathers throughout the eagle's plumage.
1819
B-4, R.4
NCS VG-10 details
J-1819-01, Price:$350
B-4 is a legitimately scarce die-marriage for 1819. VG-10 details show, but as NCS has indicated, each side has been lightly cleaned.
1819

PCGS AU/cleaned
J-1819-02, Price:$1,600
No text description has been provided for this coin, but it IS certified. Please see image.
1820
B-3, med 0
F-15, NOT certified
J-1820-01, Price:$375
Mintage: 127,444. Pale silver-tan patina decorates the devices and contrasts well with olive-drab fields. No rim dings are contact marks bear reporting, but a slight residue of unknown nature seems to rest against the reverse left rim.
1821
B-3
VF-20, NOT certified
J-1821-07, Price:$650
No text description has been provided for this coin, and it is NOT certified. Please see image.
1825/3
B-2
VF-20, NOT certified
J-1825-02, Price:$700
Ex-Steve Tompkins, who offered a grade of VF-25. We suggest a slightly more conservative assessment of VF-20, which takes into account boldly delineated major details and the presence of a few finer intricacies within. Attractive beige-grey patina takes on a slightly ruddy complexion at some lighting angles, and endows the coin with natural eye-appeal.
1825/3

VF-20, NOT certified

1825/3
B-3
ex-PCGS CAC VF-25
J-1825-04, Price:$800
Slightly glossy surfaces suggest an old cleaning, although reasonable looking peach-gold has returned to most of the surface, augmented by greyish accents. Strongly detailed for the VF grade range.
1828

VF-20, NOT certified
J-1828-01, Price:$575
Mintage: 102,000. Tiny pinpricks pepper the portrait, visible only under magnification. Technically close to very-fine, but the toning pattern is a bit odd, showing rose-grey against mostly graphite fields.
1828
B-1
VG-8, NOT certified
J-1828-03, Price:$150
Completely original, showing the partial cental definition expected of the grade.
1831
B-4
EF-40, NOT certified
J-1831-02, Price:$400
A superb original type coin, classic salmon-grey patina enshrouds the entire surface, yielding only delicate contrast to the lighter grey elevation of the design elements. Just a handful of typical, small contact marks confine themselves mostly toward the obverse left, leaving the reverse practically free from distraction.
1834
B-1 , O/F
EF-40, NOT certified
J-1834-01, Price:$340
Early silver couldn't be more original than this distraction-free example, as the surface exudes perfect navy-grey patina and delicate salmon accents on the highpoints. Utterly problem-free, some tinges of delicate luster still cling close to the design elements, including the very popular O/F on the reverse.
1835

EF-40, NOT certified
J-1835-01, Price:$400
A thin, old hairline extends from the left field across Liberty's throat, but it has toned down such as to practically disappear into the vintage patina. Perhaps compensating a bit for this slight shortcoming, pretty cobalt-grey iridescence permeates the outer edge of each side, presenting an especially nice border on the reverse.
1835
B-7
VF-30, NOT certified
J-1835-02, Price:$200
Rather pretty violet-grey toning spreads throughout most of the surface, accented by delicate cyan accents on the highpoints. Practically EF in terms of sharpness and an attractive type coin for sure.
1835
B-5, LDS
AU-50, NOT certified
J-1835-06, Price:$650
Exquisite album toning dominates the eye-appeal, showing roughly circular bands of the expected colors on both sides. An exemplarly Wayte Raymond album representative.
1835
B-1
VF-35, NOT certified
J-1835-08, Price:$200
Nicely tinged in delicate peach-gold accents, with bluish color starting to form around the obverse rim and most of the reverse rim.
1836
B-3
VF-30, NOT certified
J-1836-02, Price:$200
Dusky grey overall, yielding to iron accents on the higher design elements.
1836
B-4, LDS R4+

J-1837-01, Price:$475
Delicate lavender-grey layers each side.
1898

No text description has been provided for this coin, but it IS certified. Please see image.
1907-D

ANACS (yellow label) EF-40
J-1907d-01, Price:$85
Perfect for the grade, the obverse displays minor luster surrounding the stars, while the reverse features about a third of the original cartwheel - basically the very definition of EF-45. A single small hairline scratch at the temple provides the only minor distraction.
1917-D

PCGS MS-64 FH
J-1917d-01, Price:$900
Production quality is quite on-par with the Philadelphia counterparts, aside from slightly less vibrant luster. Beautifully detailed, the most apparent grade-limiting factor should be some minor ticks and scuffs in the reverse fields.
1917-D

PCGS AU-58 FH
J-1917d-51, Price:$375
What many dealers call an 'unc-able' coin, the surface appears very much like that of a typical MS-62, showing essentially no wear aside from a very faint texture shift on some high points. Choice BU at first glance, and quite as sharply defined as expected of the FH designation.
1927-S

NGC F-12
J-1927s-01, Price:$115
No text description has been provided for this coin, but it IS certified. Please see image.
1936-S

NGC MS-65
J-1936s-01, Price:$300
Blistering no-question gem with considerable eye-appeal.
1939

NGC MS-67
J-1939-01, Price:$160
Platinum-orange toning powders the outer peripheral areas, ceding to silvery brightness on the obverse, while the reverse displays mostly lighter orange toward the centers.
1942

NGC (no-line, green label) PF-65
J-1942-01, Price:$80
Ultra-original and never dipped, as each side displays steam-grey toning with tan nuances toward the rim on the obverse.
