Description

1827 Quarter Eagle, AU Details
Last Open Collar Issue, BD-1

1827 $2 1/2 -- Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. AU. BD-1, R.5. Bass-Dannreuther Die State a/c. No quarter eagles were struck in 1818 and, when coinage of the denomination resumed in 1829, the denomination was struck with a close collar. The 1827 is the last issue of the Large Dentils type, with a reported mintage of 2,800 pieces and a single die variety for the date. Only 45-55 examples survive today in all grades. This was the only use of the obverse die, but the reverse had been used previously in 1825 and 1826.

The present coin features lightly worn well-detailed design elements and pleasing antique-gold surfaces that show remarkably few abrasions. The mint luster has been somewhat muted by a light cleaning in previous years but the overall appearance is quite pleasing.
From the Collection of Donald E. Bently, sold for the benefit of the Bently Foundation.(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 25FJ, PCGS# 7666)
