Description 1819 25C Small 9 MS64+ NGC. CAC. B-3, R.1. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Current Condition Census information records just 10 Mint State examples of the 1819 B-3 quarter, and the Eric P. Newman example is the fourth finest of those 10 coins. This piece is a late die state with extensive obverse die cracks as recorded in Early Quarter Dollars of the United States Mint. This piece is also the second finest 1819 quarter that NGC has certified (10/13). This near-Gem is plated in Early Quarter Dollars of the United States Mint, and it is also the Browning plate coin. Unlike the Large 9 obverse of the 1819 B-2 quarter, the B-3 is known as the Small 9, or more properly the "Normal 9" as it is the same size as the other digits. The obverse exhibits a lovely blend of steel-gray and delicate blue toning, with the similar reverse showing additional iridescent toning. 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. Realized $23,501.18 .
