    1832 BD-1 Two and a Half
    Mint State Sharpness

    1832 $2 1/2 BD-1, R.4 -- Cleaned -- NGC Details. Unc. The sole die marriage of this challenging Capped Head Left date, which has a Guide Book mintage of only 4,400 pieces. This is a boldly defined example that has pale peach toning and microgranular surfaces. Repaired on the D in the denomination and the nearby dentils, though there is no sign of repair opposite near star 8. The 1832 is part of the six-year run of reduced diameter dates that began in 1829 and ended with the advent of the new tenor Classic type. All dates are rare, but for the advanced collector, the only stopper is the 1834, of which fewer than two dozen are known.
