    Reflective and Rare BD-1
    1833 Quarter Eagle, MS62

    1833 $2 1/2 MS62 NGC. Breen-6136, BD-1, R.5. All quarter eagles from 1829 through 1834, prior to the first Classic Head coins, are extremely rare in all grades. Some have called the 1833 the rarest of the rare, for it is more elusive than any other date in this short series, except for the 1834 Capped Head coinage, a major rarity. The BD-1 is the only known die pairing for the year, with a mintage recorded as 4,160 pieces.
    The present MS62 specimen shows bold definition, except for the centers of each side. The fields are reflective, as usual, since the limited mintage means that every coin is an early strike. The surfaces have gorgeous greenish yellow-gold color. Census: 7 in 62, 11 finer (4/09).(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# BFWC, PCGS# 7673)

    Weight: 4.37 grams

    Metal: 91.67% Gold, 8.33% Copper
