Description & Analysis

This low mintage issue is somewhat more available than one would expect, at least in lower grades. The better circulated grades are quite scarce, and Mint State coins are genuinely rare.

All 1848 quarter dollars are from one of two die pairs, each featuring a nicely repunched date. NGC's VP-002 (Briggs-1A) features a complete duplication of the date and is the rarer of the two.
