||1819 25C Large 9 MS64 NGC. B-2, R.3. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Coinage production at the Mint in 1819 consisted of cents, quarters, half dollars, and half eagles. Cents and half dollars were the "workhorse" denominations, while quarters and half eagles were minted in much smaller quantities. The mintage of 1819 quarters was less than half that of 1818, and fewer than half the number of die varieties are known for 1819. However, the average number of coins produced per die marriage was nearly identical: 36,117 in 1818, and 36,000 in 1819. The Eric P. Newman specimen was struck from a late die state with numerous obverse die cracks. This example is plated in the Browning reference and it is tied for the second finest known B-2 quarter. Variegated toning includes medium silver-gray, blue, and gold on the obverse with light gray-gold toning and splashes of peripheral blue on the reverse. Census: 7 in 64 (1 in 64+), 1 finer (10/13). Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $10.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
