1818/5 Capped Bust Quarter. B-1. Rarity-2. VF-25 (PCGS). This variety was struck by an unknown maker in solid gold. Clearly double struck on the obverse with slight separation between strikes, while the reverse shows the heavy die file lines as encountered. Reflective fields and a tough issue to find in any grade at all. The obverse has fourteen stars surrounding Liberty and the reverse has an open wreath with the date and denomination at the center.
