Owner Comments:

1820 25C Small O AU58 PCGS. B-4, R2. Population (PCGS 8/9, NGC 1/1).

The relationship between the quarter and half dollar during this era is similar to that between the half cent and large cent. The larger denomination was preferred in commerce, and had significantly higher mintages. Aside from the 1815, the 1820 is the lowest mintage year of the Capped Bust half series. Yet its mintage of 751,122 pieces is more than five times that of the 127,444 quarters struck that year.

The date has a small 8, star 7 points to the lower part of the cap, and the I in PLURIBUS is centered under the left stand of the second T in STATES. Splashes of blue, olive-green, and purple intermingle over quite clean surfaces that retain a fair amount of luster. Sharp definition is apparent on all of the design features.
