    1831 Quarter Eagle, BD-1, Choice AU
    Rare PCGS Doily Holder

    1831 $2 1/2 BD-1, R.4, AU55 PCGS. The 1831 quarter eagles are another in a string of single-variety years, the obverse a new die and the reverse a holdover from 1830 (and reused again in 1832, 1833, and 1834). This Choice AU coin, encapsulated in an early (and in-demand) PCGS holder, shows scant evidence of circulation wear, but there are numerous small ticks intermingling with a few larger scrapes on both sides, most notable among them a gash through the horizontal shield lines on the reverse. Other, smaller scrapes appear in the vertical shield lines, the left reverse field, and to a lesser degree on Liberty's face and neck. Certified in a rare PCGS doily label holder. Population: 9 in 55, 41 finer (7/16).
    From The Twelve Oaks Collection. (NGC ID# BFWA, Variety PCGS# 45525, Base PCGS# 7671)

    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.
