    Evasive 1832 Quarter Eagle

    1832 $2 1/2 --Scratched, Cleaned--ANACS. Unc Details, Net AU50. Bass-3029, Breen-6135, R.4. No Quarter Eagle production of the Capped Head Left design should rightly be considered common in today's hobby. The vast majority of coins produced from 1821-1834 (the years in which this design was employed for this denomination) were melted due to rising gold prices on the world market. This 1832 representative is a survivor from an original mintage of just 4,400 coins. Although not problem-free, the surfaces display overall bold definition with only modest softness of detail confined to some of the highpoints. The latter is due to the fact that the 1832 was prepared in higher relief than the 1829, 1830, and 1831 and, thus, was subjected to poorer strikes and more rapid wear. There are several marks confined to the obverse at the lower right quadrant. The fields are noticeably hairlined from the rather harsh cleaning. Still, a very collectible example of this rarely seen date.(#7672) (Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# BFWB, PCGS# 7672)
