    Flashy BD-1 1829 Quarter Eagle, AU58 ★

    1829 $2 1/2 AU58 ★ NGC. Breen-6132, BD-1, High R.4. The Capped Bust to Left, Reduced Diameter quarter eagle issues from 1829 to 1834 have much in common. They were all relatively low-mintage, with between 3,000 and 5,000 pieces struck; each was coined from a single set of dies; and each was melted heavily as old-tenor coinage, both before and after the reduction in weight that was heralded by the Classic Head design. This 1829 quarter eagle is uncommonly attractive, and though a modicum of friction is present on the high points, the strong, moderately flashy yellow-gold luster is virtually intact. NGC has graded just 26 Mint State representatives for the issue (6/09).
    From The R.M. Phillips Limited Partnership Collection.(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# BFW7, PCGS# 7669)
