scarce wartime issue made at the US Mint, retail $20
20.  1833 Liberty Cap quarter dollar, Choice AU50 PROOFLIKE,  a most
unusual coin with heavy die clashes, period after 25 C, but without the
die rust mentioned by Breen on almost all of this issue. This coin was
struck from the same die as Lot 6444 in the 1998 Portland ANA auction,
but absolutely no evidence of die rust. An obviously rare die state,
the lowest mintage year of this type, a very high grade plus prooflike
surfaces make this coin a "must have!"  Retail $1,000
