RARE PCGS AU55 1833 QUARTER EAGLE

BD-1, R-5.

The 1833 is the second rarest date of this type, trailing only the very rare 1834. There were 4,160 struck and there an estimated 60-70 known. This date is not often seen in the higher circulated grades, and when it is, the coin in question tends to be terrible. The finest known business strikes are the the Pogue 9/15: 2056 and 2057 Gems which grade MS66+ and MS66, respectively.

I submitted this coin twice to PCGS in the hopes that it would upgrade to AU58. It has a lot of remaining luster and I have seen vastly inferior examples of this type in AU58 holders. Both sides show light wear with pleasing pale green-gold colors. The strike is better than average for the date with just a few of the stars showing little or no detail at the centers. The most notable mark is a shallow horizontal line in Liberty’s chin but there is nothing deep or detracting.

Only one PCGS AU55 example of this date has sold at auction since 1996 and it realized $15,275 as Heritage 2015 FUN: 6854. The last PCGS AU58 to sell at auction brought a very strong $24,675 as Heritage 6/17: 3806.

This would make a great type coin for the collector who wishes to obtain a nice quality Small Size Capped Head Left quarter eagle.
