    1830 Quarter Eagle, A Difficult Issue to Locate in Any Condition

    1830 $2 1/2 XF 40 Damaged, Brushed. In the years preceding the Mint Act of 1834, mintage figures of quarter eagles remained well below the 10,000-coin mark. As the price of gold continued to soar on the international market, many of these low mintage issues witnessed widespread melting. Despite obvious impairments, the present example is an important survivor from a delivery of only 4,540 pieces. The unnaturally bright surfaces reveal unfortunate pinscratches across Liberty's cheek. Save for the eagle's wing tips, the devices are quite well defined for the grade. Yellow-gold coloration rounds out the appearance of this scarce specimen. (NGC ID# BFW8, PCGS# 7670)

    Weight: 4.37 grams

    Metal: 91.67% Gold, 8.33% Copper
