    1830 BD-1 Quarter Eagle, MS62
    Elusive Design Type

    1830 $2 1/2 MS62 PCGS. Breen-6133, BD-1, R.4. Perfect dies as always, with no die cracks, clash marks, or evidence of lapping. The U in UNITED is sharply doubled, a feature common to all Capped Bust quarter eagles struck from 1830 to 1834, all from a single reverse die. Each of those five issues have just one variety, and each is a low mintage issue with a total combined mintage of 21,620 coins for all five years.
    This satiny mint state piece is fully lustrous with brilliant lemon-yellow surfaces and delicate orange overtones. The strike is excellent and eye appeal is strong. Faint field reflectivity is evident on both sides. The Capped Bust quarter eagles with a reduced diameter were struck from 1829 to 1834 in limited numbers and survivors are infrequently encountered. Population: 10 in 62, 18 finer (6/11).(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# BFW8, PCGS# 7670)

    Weight: 4.37 grams

    Metal: 91.67% Gold, 8.33% Copper

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
