    1834 BD-1 Two and a Half
    Rare Capped Bust Variety

    1834 $2 1/2 Capped Bust, BD-1, R.6 -- Repaired -- PCGS Genuine. AU Details. The 1834 is the rarest date of the Capped Head Left quarter eagle series. Presumably, most were melted soon after issue, and coined as new tenor Classic Head gold. This yellow-gold example is well defined with little wear, but the right fields are bright, and Liberty's cheek shows signs of smoothing. A lens reveals moderate marks on the fields and Liberty's upper lip. Nonetheless, the coin represents one of only a small number of survivors, estimated by PCGS as "18 to 24 known." The Bass-Dannreuther standard reference states "20-24 known."
