Description

1833 Two and a Half, BD-1, MS62
Only 60-80 Pieces Believed Known

1833 $2 1/2 MS62 NGC. Breen-6136, BD-1, R.5. Die State a, with no obvious clashing, lapping, or cracking. As noted above, this reverse die was first used in 1830, as seen by the mispunched U in UNITED. It is seen here somewhat fainter than three years previously. As expected from a coin with only 4,160 pieces produced, almost all known high-grade examples have semiprooflike fields as almost all the mintage is essentially a first-strike. A mere 60 to 80 pieces are believed known of the 1833 quarter eagle. Mass meltings account for the scarcity of this and other early quarter eagle and half eagle issues. The surfaces show only light abrasions, and none are significant. There are several shallow lint marks to the left of the eagle. The yellow-gold color of the coin has taken on a light accent of reddish patina. Sharply struck throughout. Census: 7 in 62, 11 finer (6/10).
From The Caleb Louis Collection of U.S. Gold Type.(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# BFWC, PCGS# 7673)
