Scarce 1830 Quarter Eagle, BD-1, AU581830 $2 1/2 AU58 NGC. Breen-6133, BD-1, R.4. All Capped Head quarter eagles are scarce or rare. In 1830 only 4,540 coins of the denomination were minted, but the number of survivors is estimated to be just 80 to 100 pieces. In the early 1800s many gold coins were melted as bullion, and the few that survive likely saw little time in commerce. Only one variety is known for the date, identified by the repunched U in UNITED from a reverse die that was used every year from 1830 through the end of the type in 1834. In spite of this example's brief sojourn as perhaps a carry piece or a treasured keepsake there are no spots and virtually no abrasions, except for an almost imperceptible rim bump below the date. The coin is well struck, displaying a warm orange-gold color on both sides. This exceptional Capped Head quarter eagle, a type that is infrequently available and avidly sought, is sure to highlight an advanced collection. Census: 18 in 58, 21 finer (7/08).
