Description

1832 Two and a Half, BD-1, AU58
Rich Reddish-Gold Surfaces

1832 $2 1/2 AU58 PCGS. BD-1, R.4. The quarter eagle issues of the 1820s/1830s in American numismatics were red-headed stepchildren, seldom produced and little desired by much of the populace. The mintages were almost uniformly low and sporadic, a few thousand pieces in the years they were made at all. Since so few pieces were made, most of them are known only from a single die pairing, and often in a single die state -- not necessarily the prime state, however, as the obverse die had to be new for each issue, bearing the date, but the reverses could be recycled for a new year. The present 1832 was produced to the extent of 4,400 pieces, paired with a reverse that was first used in 1830, and again in 1831. Rich reddish-gold surfaces complement semiprooflike fields. The strike is generally sharp, although just a bit of uniform high-point softness on each side is barely noticeable. A light peppering of abrasions on each side is of no consequence. Population: 9 in 58, 11 finer (6/12).(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 25FN, PCGS# 7672)
