|1832 25C MS65 NGC. B-2, R.2. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. A total of 320,000 quarters were minted in 1832, apparently all from two die pairs, although some of the pieces struck in the year may have been dated 1831. Only one obverse die was used in 1832 to create both die marriages. Star 7 points to a curl below Liberty's cap, and an inside point of star 13 is quite close to the rear curl. The 8 is recut on the lower left. The reverse die was also used twice, to strike the 1831 B-7 and the 1832 B-2. The arrowheads are shorter and are more distant from the edge than on the B-1 reverse. The feather is over the right side of the 2; on B-1 the feather is centered over the C. The eagle has no tongue. This piece is in Early Quarter Dollars of the United States Mint Die State P, showing an obverse die crack from the curl to star 13 and star 12. A close-up photo of the crack on the Newman Collection coin is in Early Quarter Dollars of the United States Mint. This coin is also the Early Quarter Dollars of the United States Mint and Browning plate coin, and is from the Browning Collection. It is tied for the second-finest certified for the die marriage. The obverse shows mostly medium-gray toning, accented by deep blue at the edges and a layer of deeper gold toning inside the date and stars. The reverse is an attractive light to medium silver, complementing gold toning close to the rims. The strike is uniformly sharp throughout both sides. 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 @ $3.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
