Rarity and value are apples and oranges.

Issues with 1 known remaining example are clearly the rarest.

1814 half dollar struck in platinum

There are three of those.

How about the 1870 S half dime (unique), the 1870 S three dollar gold (unique but there may be a second in the S mint cornerstone.) Does an 1870 S quarter exist? they put a full set of coins in the cornerstone in 1870 and the quarter is the only one now that doesn't have a known example outside the stone. If they made duplicates of the half dime, Seated dollar and three dollar gold, they almost certainly did so with the quarter as well.

Not as rare as some of the others, but the 1853 O no arrows half dollar, no known mintage but 4 examples are known. One of which just turned up fairly recently. All are worn they did go into circulation.

I would say 1873 s no arrows half dollar. 5000 minted and none are known today.

I have no idea what that coin may be.
But one thing that I do know for sure:-
It will be a unique pattern experimental strike.

That is fascinating, another quarter could be out there and unknown to us.
