    1824/1 Two and a Half, Near-Mint
    BD-1, Mintage of Only 2,600 Pieces

    1824/1 $2 1/2 BD-1, R.5, AU58 NGC. Bass-Dannreuther Die State a/a, as always. No quarter eagles were struck in 1822 or 1823, but the Capped Head Left type resumed in 1824 with a frugal production of 2,600 pieces. PCGS estimates 40 to 60 survivors, or approximately 2% of the mintage. Only a single die pair is known. Some have contested the overdate status of the 1824, since evident of an underdigit 1 is limited to a horizontal tine from the diagonal of the 4. Overdate or not, BD-1 is a desirable rarity and typically commands five figures at auction. This peach-gold representative is surprisingly unabraded, with only a line between the IC in AMERICA worth of passing mention. The centers exhibit minor inexactness of strike. Certified in a circa-2000 holder. Census: 8 in 58, 9 finer (3/21).
    From The Gibney Family Collection.
