    Mint State 1829 Quarter Eagle

    1829 $2 1/2 MS 62 NGC. An important type coin, not only because of the short life of the modified, small size Capped Head Left series, but also because the 1829's status as the first year of this type. Only 3,403 pieces were produced, and of the few survivors most are no better than XF--an Uncirculated coin such as this is certainly above average for both the issue and type. The bright green-gold surfaces show a glimmer of reflectivity in the fields, which is typical for coins of this issue. The striking details are uncommonly sharp for the series, and the only mentionable flaws are both located on the obverse, a short scratch between the nose of Liberty and star 3 and another next to star 9. (NGC ID# BFW7, PCGS# 7669)

    Weight: 4.37 grams

    Metal: 91.67% Gold, 8.33% Copper
