||1821 25C MS65 NGC. CAC. B-1, R.4. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. This impressive Gem is the finest known example, two points better than second-place in the Condition Census. It is plated in the Browning reference. Only eight Mint State examples of the 1821 B-1 quarter are recorded. Early Quarter Dollars of the United States Mint was published in 2010, and included a Condition Census for each variety, compiled by Rory Rea, Jim Koenings, and Aram Haroutunian. A special thanks is extended to those individuals for their tireless work that allows all collectors to know where their own coins rank. The mintage of quarter dollars was 216,851 coins in 1821, produced from six die marriages. The average production of 36,142 coins per die marriage is consistent with several other years of the large size Capped Bust quarters. This Gem from the Eric P. Newman Collection is an early die state with no visible die cracks. The obverse exhibits rich blue, gold, and reddish-gray toning around light silver at the center. The reverse is primarily brilliant light silver-gray with peripheral splashes of gold and blue. Census: 7 in 65, 6 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 @ $7.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
