Featuring the capped bust of Liberty on one side and the seal of the United States on the reverse, this 1820 Quarter Dollar is an undoubted rarity. It is known as a "Small 0" variety, a reference to the differing size of the date numbers in "1820" on the coin's face. While the Small 0 1820 Quarter Dollar is itself a numismatic treasure, one in the extraordinarily good condition of the present example is almost impossible to find. On the numismatic rarity scale that ranks coins from 1 (least rare) to 10 (most rare), this 1820 Capped Bust Quarter achieve a remarkable 9.8, making it one of the rarest quarters in the world. It is one of just three known coins that achieve a quality grade of 66; another recently appeared at Sotheby's in May 2015, where it brought $99,875. No other coins of this type have a higher grade.
