1831 $2 1/2 MS60 NGC. The 1829-1834 Capped Head Left ...
Scarce 1831 Quarter Eagle, MS601831 $2 1/2 MS60 NGC. The 1829-1834 Capped Head Left quarter eagle design was modified slightly by William Kneass. But the most important modification was the introduction of beaded borders and raised rims. The 1831 is a more difficult issue in the series, comparable to the 1830 and 1832, and considerably more difficult than the 1829. Only 4,520 pieces were struck, and as is well known and widely reported, the great majority were melted shortly after issuance. Sharply struck, except at the juncture of the shield and left (facing) eagle's wing, the surfaces are somewhat lackluster with even golden-orange coloration and minimal abrasions for the grade.(#7671) (NGC ID# 25FM, PCGS# 7671)
