    1830 Quarter Eagle, BD-1, MS64
    Excellent Type Coin

    1830 $2 1/2 BD-1, R.4, MS64 PCGS Secure. The reverse die was new to this year and can be distinguished from the 1829 reverse by the lack of any mismatched letters (showing different sizes), a characteristic seen on the 1829 reverse and reported in Bass-Dannreuther. Once again, the surfaces of this low-mintage, late-date quarter eagle, struck to the reported extent of 4,540 coins, display the prime die state with no clashing or cracks on either side. Also expected -- but nonetheless visually delightful -- is the reflective prooflike character on both sides, augmenting the eye appeal and emphasizing the excellent preservation. This near-Gem PCGS coin displays few post-Mint signs of contact, although light planchet roughness around the date area and star 1 likely precludes an even finer grade. The strike is nice and sharp throughout, save for trivial softness left of the shield on the reverse. Lovely golden-orange color completes the appeal. PCGS reports four submissions in MS64 and six in MS65 finer (10/15). The somewhat larger certified populations of these later-date Capped Head left quarter eagles, as compared to the earlier issues, make them ideal for type coin purposes.
