    Interesting 1826 BD-1 Quarter Eagle

    1826 $2 1/2 PCGS Genuine. Breen-6130, BD-1, High R.5. The jury is still out regarding the status of this piece as an overdate. Jeff Garrett and Ron Guth wrote "the overdate may actually be nothing more than a repunched 6" and John Dannreuther comments that "the 6 of the date appears only to have been recut." However, what is known about this issue is its status as a rarity. Only about 30 to 40 examples are known in all grades, including this green-gold representative. The PCGS number ending in .94 suggests Altered Surfaces as the reason, or perhaps one of the reasons, that PCGS deemed this coin not gradable. In our opinion, the coin has the details of an AU specimen that has been cleaned and has obverse scratches. Some old clash marks also appear on the obverse. Despite the imperfections, it retains considerable luster and acceptable eye appeal.
