1831 Large Letters Quarter

The 1831 Proof Quarter is a popular first year small size Capped Bust issue that ran from 1831 to 1838. Although Large and Small Letters are known for the regular business strike, the Proof is only known in Large Letters format.

With a mintage of only 20 coins, few can be found in any condition for collectors to acquire. The present example is a wholesome, beautiful piece with a glint of beautiful rustic toning at the peripheries but is otherwise fully sharp and white. An exquisite combination.

A PR64 last sold in 2014 at $58,750. This coin is PF65 Cameo. A PR66 also sold that same year for $141,000.

Collector’s Universe: 115,000
