    Description

    ANACS 1826 VF 20. A rare and important Capped Head Left quarter eagle. It is generally considered a toss-up whether the 1826 is the key issue in the series or the 1827. The 1826 certainly has the more impressive mintage figure, with a scant 760 pieces struck. It is also one of the lowest mintages in the entire quarter eagle series. This piece shows even wear on the highpoints, but fortunately does not appear to have suffered any softness of strike, thus leaving the coin with fairly good details for the grade. The fields have a deep reddish color while the devices are a sharply contrasting yellow-gold. There are a couple of shallow scratches in the right obverse field and two digs around the area of the date. (NGC ID# BFW5, PCGS# 7665)

    Weight: 4.37 grams

    Metal: 91.67% Gold, 8.33% Copper
