    Unquestionably Rare 1833 Quarter Eagle

    1833 $2 1/2 Quarter Eagle VF 30 ICG. After the 1834 (4,000 pieces produced), the 1833 (4,160 pieces produced) is the rarest issue in the Capped Head Left quarter eagle series of 1829-1834. This important mid-grade survivor displays no more than the expected amount of wear for the VF 30 level. Both sides are, however, curiously glossy in texture, and mottled copper patina has formed around the peripheries.
