    1824/1 BD-1 Two and a Half, VF35
    Rare Capped Head Left Overdate

    1824/1 $2 1/2 BD-1, R.5, VF35 PCGS. A rare Capped Head quarter eagle date, limited in availability by its initial mintage of 2,600 pieces. From that low mintage, only 40-60 pieces are believed known in all grades. Like all early gold coins, most of the coinage was eventually melted because the bullion content exceeded face value. The present Choice VF example has dusky olive-gold toning and unblemished surfaces. An opportunity to acquire a problem-free representative of this seldom-encountered type.
    Ex: ANA Signature (Heritage, 8/2010), lot 5772. (NGC ID# BFW4, Variety PCGS# 45517, Base PCGS# 7663)

    Weight: 4.37 grams

    Metal: 91.67% Gold, 8.33% Copper
