BD-1, R-4.

The short-lived Capped Head Left type of quarter eagle was made from 1829 through 1834. Mintages were very small and for the entire type only 25,023 were produced. Of the 4,540 quarter eagle made in 1830 an estimated 125 or so are known.

This gem “slider” is one of the few examples of this date or type that I have seen with natural color and unprocessed surfaces. The fields are semi-prooflike and covered with very attractive deep natural reddish-gold color which imparts excellent overall eye appeal. There is just slight wear seen on the high spots f the obverse and the only marks worthy of note are located on the chin and throat of Liberty.

There have only been three PCGS AU58 examples sold at auction since 1999 and none with CAC approval. The last record was Heritage 7/08: 1896 which realized $16,100.

This is one of the more difficult early gold types to acquire and I think this lovely AU58 is a much more cosmetically desirable example than the typical washed-out, overly bright MS61 or MS62 I see at auction or on other dealer’s websites.

This is the only 1830 quarter eagle in AU58 to have been approved by CAC; three finer have been approved as well.
