Description

Bright AU58 1829 Quarter Eagle

1829 $2 1/2 AU58 NGC. Breen-6132, BD-1, High R.4. The quarter eagle was redesigned in 1829 by William Kneass. The story of his redesign of Robert Scot's design (Scot died in 1823), is told in the forward in Breen's 1988 Encyclopedia. In short, his modified design is notable for smaller stars and letters, redrawn head and eagle, and improved beaded border.
The 1829 quarter eagle had a low mintage of only 3,403 pieces. Only 94 pieces have been certified by NGC and PCGS combined (minus an uncertain number of resubmissions). The known examples are fairly evenly distributed throughout the AU and lower Mint State grades with the greatest cluster in AU58. This is an attractive near-Gem example that shows the usual prooflike fields. The bright yellow-gold color shows the slightest overlay of reddish patina. Sharply struck with no noticeable abrasions.
From The John Stimson, Sr. Collection, Part One.(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# BFW7, PCGS# 7669)
