    1833 Quarter Eagle, BD-1, XF40
    Scarce Date, Just 60 to 80 Pieces Known

    1833 $2 1/2 BD-1, R.5, XF40 NGC. Bass-Dannreuther Die State a/c. Only a single die combination was needed -- understandably so -- to coin the meager 4,160 reported examples of the 1833 quarter eagle, and only a single die state is known for those pieces, the BD state a/c. The reverse die was a reuse of one employed on quarter eagles of 1830, 1831, and 1832, all in virtually the same die state. This XF example shows some moderate wear on each side consistent with the grade, but the only singular marks are a couple of scrapes on Liberty's lower neck and a vertical mark between the 3s in the date. A diagonal scrape runs though the eagle's shield and onto the neck. Prevailing olive-gold color deepens near the rim to a amber-gold.
