    Choice AU 1833 Quarter Eagle

    1833 $2 1/2 AU55 ANACS. Nicer than the AU55 in our 1996 ANA Sale, this piece is remarkably free from abrasions on the obverse, and the only ticks on the reverse that are worthy of mention are a couple of marks between the eagle's head and scroll. The fields retain good portions of prooflike reflectiveness and both sides display rich reddish patina. 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 well above average for the issue, with the norm being XF40. (NGC ID# BFWC, PCGS# 7673)

    Weight: 4.37 grams

    Metal: 91.67% Gold, 8.33% Copper
