Description

1829 Capped Bust Quarter Eagle, BD-1, MS62
First Issue With Beaded Dentils, Scarce

1829 $2 1/2 MS62 PCGS. Breen-6132, BD-1, High R.4. CAC. Only 3,403 quarter eagles were minted in 1829, the first quarter eagle issue coined with the close collar third die. The borders are raised, with beaded dentils instead of the old cigar shaped protrusions. John Dannreuther estimates a surviving population of 70-90 pieces in all grades, and Mint State examples are rare.
The present coin exhibits sharp striking details throughout, with the hair and star centers crisply defined. The surfaces are bright greenish-gold, with a reflective, prooflike quality. The extraordinary visual appeal is confirmed by the CAC sticker. Population: 7 in 62, 16 finer (6/10).
From The Dr. and Mrs. Claude Davis Collection.(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 25FK, PCGS# 7669)
