    Choice AU 1827 BD-1 Quarter Eagle

    1827 $2 1/2 AU55 PCGS. Breen-6131, BD-1, R.5. This is the only known variety of 1827 quarter eagles and it is doubtful that any others will be found as the mintage was limited to a mere 2,800 coins according to the Guide Book. In the new reference on the series by John Dannreuther, Early U.S. Gold Coin Varieties, the actual mintage is estimated in the range of 1,750 to 2,800 coins.
    There was actually only one quarter eagle die produced for this coinage, as the reverse was carried over from its earlier use for both some 1825 quarter eagles and all 1826 pieces. This example appears to be an early die state before the reverse die was lapped, as traces of clash marks appear at the left end of the scroll, nearly identical to late states of the 1826 quarter eagles. This Choice AU piece has attractive greenish-gold surfaces with considerable luster. Both sides are lightly abraded, typical in appearance to nearly all known examples of the design type that was issued from 1821 to 1827.
