    1821 Capped Head Left Quarter Eagle, BD-1
    AU58
    , Scarce Date in a Challenging Series

    1821 $2 1/2 AU58 NGC. Breen-6126, BD-1, R.5. The 1821 quarter eagle has one of the "larger" mintages of the Capped Head Left type with 6,448 pieces struck. However, even this mintage is misleading when trying to gauge availability since so many coins were melted over the next 13 years as their intrinsic value exceeded their face value. As pointed out by Garrett-Guth, the 1821 is actually one of the scarcer dates in the series and is only exceeded in rarity by the 1826 and 1834 With Motto issues. This piece is similar to almost all known 1821s with its noticeably prooflike fields, a result no doubt of being struck from the same dies as proofs of this date. The diagnostic depression is also present on Liberty's cheek. The surfaces are bright yellow-gold with a faint outline of reddish patina around the devices. Numerous small abrasions are scattered over each side.(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# BFW3, PCGS# 7662)
