    1830 Quarter Eagle, MS62
    BD-1, Only Dies for the Date

    1830 $2 1/2 MS62 NGC. BD-1, R.4. Bass-Dannreuther Die State a/a. Only 4,540 Capped Bust Left quarter eagles were struck in 1830, with a single die variety known for the date. No more than 80-100 examples survive today in all grades. the obverse die was prepared at an earlier date, as evidenced by the large dentils, but it must have been undated at the time of preparation. The small dentils reverse was used to strike all quarter eagles from 1830 to the end of the series in 1834, including proofs.

    This attractive MS62 specimen offers well-detailed design elements and lemon-yellow surfaces with some scattered minor contact marks. Prooflike reflectivity is evident in sheltered areas. Census: 5 in 62, 11 finer (2/14).
    From the Collection of Donald E. Bently, sold for the benefit of the Bently Foundation.(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# BFW8, PCGS# 7670)
