Expert Comments

Ron Guth: Two major varieties comprise the 1819 Quarter Dollars: Large 9 and Small 9 (the Small 9 is called a "Normal" 9 by early Quarter Dollar experts Rea et al).  The 9 on the Large 9 is substantially larger than either of the 1's in the date; on the Small ("Normal") 9, the 9 is approximately the same hieght as the adjacent 1.  The most common of the two 1819 Large 9 Quarter Dollar die varieties (B-2) is scarce; the other (B-1) is very scarce to rare.  According to the PCGS Population Report, the Large 9 is nearly twice as rare as the Small 9.

The PCGS CoinFacts Condition Census for the 1819 Large 9 Quarter Dollar includes coins from PCGS AU53 to PCGS MS-65.  The finest examples are a pair at the MS-65 level.
