Description

Elusive 1808 Capped Bust Quarter Eagle

1808 $2 1/2 --Damaged, Cleaned--ANACS. XF Details, Net VF20. The 1808 Capped Bust Quarter Eagle, one of a mere 2,710 pieces minted, is needed by the modest number of date collectors of United States gold, but enjoys even heavier demand as a one-year type coin. The bright yellow-gold surfaces of this moderately circulated example show balanced wear save for normally weak borders on the right side. The planchet appears slightly wavy above the date as the result of several punch marks in the area of the scroll. Another small depression is noticed between stars 1 and 2 on the obverse. These distractions aside, an extremely scarce type coin that seldom becomes available in any condition.
From The Dr. Douglas Roane Collection. (NGC ID# 25FD, PCGS# 7660)
