Bright MS63 1830 Quarter Eagle, BD-11830 $2 1/2 MS63 PCGS. Breen-6133, BD-1, R.4. The BD-1 of 1830 is one of "several single-variety years" known among the early quarter eagles, an unsurprising result given the annually small mintages for this red-headed stepchild of American coinage: There was simply no need for multiple die pairings. The recorded mintage for the 1830 was only 4,540 pieces, and the reverse die was reused again in 1831, 1832, 1833, and 1834. Bass-Dannreuther estimate that from 80 to 100 pieces survive today of the 1830 in all grades, of which this piece is in the upper echelon. The strike is sharp throughout, and the fields are semiprooflike with occasional patches of porosity, likely due to the quality of the original planchet. No mentionable marks appear on either side of this lustrous, bright yellow-gold piece.(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 25FL, PCGS# 7670)
