Description & Analysis

The 1818 quarter dollar is among the most common issues of the Capped Bust, Large Size type. Indeed, its mintage exceeds that of any other date by more than 100,000 pieces. Mint State pieces are plentiful with respect to those other dates, and nice circulated specimens are also readily available.

The production of 1818 quarter was spread over eight deliveries lasting from April to December. The largest of these, that of July 6, was for 228,494 pieces. Ten die marriages are known from the pairing of five obverse dies with seven reverses. Browning varieties 2, 3, 4, 8 and 10 are common, while B-5, -6, and -7 are somewhat scarce. The only variety that is close to being rare is B-9, while the popular overdate, B-1, is common and is detailed in the following entry. B-3 shares its obverse die, which is in a later state no longer showing the overdate.
