We acquired 1823/2 quarter at busy Central States show, plus Newps
April 27, 2014

We acquired one of the real rarities in Bust coinage with our purchase of an 1823/2 quarter.  The coin is a PCGS graded Good-4 and is pedigreed to the collection of the legendary John J. Pittman.  (The pedigree is on the holder.)  There are about 30 known 1823/2 quarters and this is the 4th one we have handled.  At Central States, we also acquired an 1822 25/50 quarter in PCGS AG-3 (with a Good reverse, almost all of these coins have a better reverse).  We will post pix of these coins when they are returned to us by our shipping company.


The Central States show was non-stop action every day from opening until closing.  We were constantly busy at our table, both buying and selling.  Sales exceeded expectations, especially on Saturday.  I was able to acquire some nice coins, including about 40 Seated half dollars.  These Central States newps will be delivered in May.


This newsletter contains part 2 of the Baltimore newps, which include a fabulous 1866 dime in NGC MS-64 (and it is definitely a business strike), an 1806 O-124 half (R6) in PCGS VG-10, an 1807 Bearded Goddess half in PCGS VG-8, and awesomely gorgeously toned examples of the 1830 half, 1836 Reeded Edge half, and 1859 Proof half.
