x John McCloskey Collection, R1. This LM-13.1 variety was graded AU Details-BENT  by NGC. In looking at the coin in the holder, I cannot be 100% sure where the issue lies, the only possible disruption at around 8 o'clock. Priced accordingly, recent auction sales since 1/21 for both PCGS and NGC are above $215 in AU50. Field are original. The Heritage sale of the McCloskey collection took place in Jan 2022. The Heritage Auction sticker still remains on the reverse. Details. New 7/14

A silvery toned little gem. Although the variety is not designated on the holder, this is LM-10, R1, and the most common die marriage for 1833. Struck from Obverse 3, in its 3rd and final use, the 83 very close at the top of the numerals. The P reverse with both loops of S2 filled. A few minor die cracks are noted, maybe the most interesting between the A and top of arrowhead. So nice in hand , perfect for an XF-AU set adventure. Gem.  green-sticker-1_orig

The 1821 has a large mintage of 1,186,512 and ten varieties. This JR-8 variety is fairly easy to identify, first it's one of 3 small date varieties. Next, of the three small dates , JR-8 is the only one with the second 1 under the curl, easy enough ! This example is quite attractive, with lovely gunmetal grey surfaces. A couple of ticks to the facial area are noted, as is a very minor rim hit above star 2,  ORIGINAL. Consignor Reduction

Original steel grey fields, a splash of iridescent toning in the fields and lots of remaining design features highlight the value proposition for this lovely JR3, R2 example. The key Obverse 2 design feature is star 7 pointing to the top of the headband. The 3 was overlayed over 2 and remnants of the 2 are clearly seen, especially behind the 3's lower loop. The reverse with large E's in Legend, left leg om M broken. Cool coin, way nicer than my image. ORIGINAL. Consignor Reduction

Lite photography fails to capture how nice this  1827 is in-hand. While capturing the grey patina that dominates most of the coin's fields, I over exposed the worn high points and they show more "whitish" than the actual light steel grey that they are. The JR7 variety employs Reverse F with A2 below M and Obverse 5 which was also used on JR8. R3,  ORIGINAL. Consignor reduction

The 1806 over 5 Draped Bust with Heraldic Eagle quarter , B-1 , has always been very popular with collectors as the overdate is quite dramatic and can be seen with the naked eye. This example, although worn, displays nice rims and is generally problem free except for the obverse scratches, most notably at Miss Liberty's neck. Light gunmetal grey patina, Miss Liberty's portrait quite strong with good lower hair curls consistent with the assigned grade. On the reverse. URI partial, UNIM also partial but a bit stronger. Shield lines, both horizontal and vertical are mostly clear. Market Acceptable. New 1/19

This 1834 B-4 Capped Bust quarter displays the classic gunmetal grey surfaces that I like so much on early 19th century US coins. The B-4 pairing is common, fields are quite nice , making this a great choice for a VF-EF set. The reverse is early die state with the die crack only showing below the eagle's wing and through the arrows. C with period, the 5 and C far apart. Original.

This strictly original 1835 Capped Bust quarter displays the gunmetal toned surfaces that I like to handle so much. Although the variety is not attributed on the holder I have it as a early die state Browning-5, R-3. The obverse with date close, the 5 about halfway under curl. The upper star points to the end of the upper curl, and lower right star spaced from the curl. The reverse with the 25 spaced and no eagle tongue. The only blemish on this coin is the dark  spot on the reverse  above the eagle's forehead. So nice in-hand and a great choice for a VF-EF 19th century type set that values original fields. CHOICE.

This 1837 Bust Quarter looks to have been cleaned and brushed over, probably hide a carbon spot blemish. Still, its a rare B-3 variety that will get Bust quarter afficionados excited with its R-5 designation. This variety pairs Obverse 2 with Reverse 1. The obverse with top of 7 at extreme right centered under the curl, upper left star points to upper part of lower curl. The reverse with dramatic, bold  die crack from the rim above E through STAT and then to D in United.  Great pick for a raw variety set or to certify is one is not focused on straight grading this variety. For a raw coin, it's Market Acceptable.
