Impressive AU50 1821 Quarter Eagle

1821 $2 1/2 AU50 NGC. Breen-6126, Bass-3018, BD-1, R.5. This attractive example displays a substantial degree of semi-prooflikeness in the fields. The design features are boldly struck for the issue, with typical slight weakness noted on some of the obverse stars and on the eagle's leg feathers and talons, as well as on the vertical shield lines. Lime-gold coloration is imbued on the highpoints of each side with alluring accents of peach and rose. This was the first production of quarter eagles since 1808, and the mintage of 6,448 pieces was the highest for the new Capped Head to Left type (produced irregularly through 1834). According to Dannreuther-Bass (2006), however, survivors from this issue are rare, and they estimate that a mere 50 to 60 coins are extant. (Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# BFW3, PCGS# 7662)
