    Choice AU 1833 Quarter Eagle, BD-1

    1833 $2 1/2 AU55 NGC. Breen-6136, BD-1, R.5. As a date, the 1833 is the second-rarest issue in the 1829-34 Capped Head Left series of quarter eagles, trailing only the revered 1834. This piece is slightly above average for the issue, according to the Encyclopedia of U.S. Gold Coins, where the average grade level for survivors of this date is recorded as 53.7. This Choice AU example has a nice appearance, with a good amount of detail, even olive-gold coloration, and just one or two small abrasions on the reverse.
