    1833 Quarter Eagle, Choice AU
    BD-1, Pleasing Surfaces

    1833 $2 1/2 BD-1, R.5, AU55 PCGS. Bass-Dannreuther Die State a/c. The only dies for this rare date. The U in UNITED is repunched, and the 8 in the date is entered slightly high. A splendid Choice AU example with attractive and minimally abraded lemon-gold surfaces. The strike is generally sharp, although the curl left of the ear and the first two vertical shield stripes show minor incompleteness. Dannreuther writes, "the apparent 'die crack' that joins the upper and lower knobs of the 3s of the date is from a broken punch, not a cracked die." Housed in a green label holder.
