A scarcer, low mintage date in this short Capped Bust Quarter series. The 1822 was probably produced to the extent of fewer than 64,080 pieces. That figure represents the number of quarters struck during calendar-year 1822, but the elusiveness of the 1822 in today's market suggests that many 1821-dated examples are included in this mintage. There are only two known die marriages for the 1822 Capped Bust quarter, and B-2 with the desirable 25/50 C. feature is by far the most difficult to obtain in all grades.
This richly toned, golden-silver example is quite well defined despite isolated softness of strike and a bit of light highpoint wear. Both surfaces are outlined in vibrant blue, green and yellow toning.
