    Condition Census 1832 Quarter Eagle

    1832 $2 1/2 MS 63 PCGS. Among the finest certified survivors of this issue, the present coin shares the MS 63 level with only 3 other coins between both major grading services (2/00). A bright, prooflike coin, the otherwise olive-gold surfaces show a thin veil of milky patina on the obverse. Both sides are typically marked for the grade, but a trivial scrape in the reverse field above the eagle's right (facing) wing is the only readily identifiable pedigree marker. With razor sharp striking definition and outstanding eye appeal for the issue, this coin would do justice to any gold collection.
    With a low mintage of 4,400 pieces, it is little wonder that the 1832 is a rare find in any grade. According to Akers, a surviving population estimate of 200 pieces is too optimistic given the infrequency with which examples appear on the market. At the MS 63 level, the "small handful [that] exist in this quality range" appear so sporadically as to underscore the importance of the present lot. (NGC ID# BFWB, PCGS# 7672)
