Old Green Holder; by today’s standards this coin is very close to a full MS63.

Capped Head Left quarter eagles were made from 1829 to 1834 and with the exception of the exceedingly rare 1834, the other five dates are reasonably similar in overall rarity. There are around 100-125 1830 quarter eagles known from the original mintage of 4,540 and around half of these are in Uncirculated; mostly in the MS60 to MS63 range.

This example has been off the market for over two decades and it has never appeared for sale at auction. It is an early die state with nearly fully Prooflike surfaces which shimmer below lovely light green-gold and pale reddish hues. The strike is fully at the centers and borders and the planchet is very high quality. The depth of the reflectiveness amplifies some light ticks in the left obverse field but this piece is uncleaned, never dipped and really exceptional for the grade.

The last PCGS MS62 1830 quarter eagle to sell at auction brought $23,000 as Heritage 8/11: 7447. An NGC MS62 with CAC approval realized $24,675 as Heritage 11/14: 3199.

If you collect United States gold by type and you lack an example of this type, this 1830 quarter eagle, replete with all the “bells and whistles,” is an ideal piece for your consideration.

CAC has approved two in this grade with three finer.
