    1829 Two and a Half, Near-Mint
    BD-1, Low-Mintage Date

    1829 $2 1/2 BD-1, High R.4, AU58 NGC. Bass-Dannreuther Die State a/a. In 1829, the diameter of the quarter eagle was reduced from 18.5 to 18.2 millimeters. This required Chief Engraver William Kneass to make new device punches for the portrait and eagle, but the differences were subtle. The 1829 has the lowest mintage of the reduced diameter subtype, at only 3,403 pieces. This well-struck, honey-gold example retains substantial luster, and is minimally abraded overall. A mark on the rim below the 1 in the date is mentioned solely as an identifier. Census: 10 in 58, 28 finer (11/19). (Variety PCGS# 45523, Base PCGS# 7669)

    Weight: 4.37 grams

    Metal: 91.67% Gold, 8.33% Copper
