    1831 Quarter Eagle, MS63
    Appealing, Low-Mintage Date, BD-1

    1831 $2 1/2 MS63 NGC. Breen-6134, BD-1, R.4. The 1831 Capped Bust Left quarter eagle boasts a low mintage of 4,520 pieces, with a single variety known for the date. John Dannreuther estimates a surviving population of 110-125 examples in all grades. The 1831 is definitely rare in Mint State condition. The present coin is a pleasing Select Mint State specimen with an exceptional strike. Fine detail is present in Liberty's hair and the eagle's feathers. The surfaces are prooflike, as might be expected with the small mintage, and both sides display vivid greenish-gold color. Eye appeal is exceptional. Census: 7 in 63, 15 finer (9/10).(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# BFWA, PCGS# 7671)

    Weight: 4.37 grams

    Metal: 91.67% Gold, 8.33% Copper
