Quarter Eagle, 1824/1 Capped Bust $2.50 NGC MS62. Of
great rarity and importance, this Mint-State Capped
Head quarter eagle is among the finest known of the
date. The obverse was overdated from a leftover 1821
die, which was the last year this denomination had previously
been struck. The reverse die was previously used to
strike all 1821 quarter eagles, but did not show any
signs of use yet.
The total number of
survivors of this issue has been estimated to be between
50 and 60 pieces in all grades. Most are in circulated
grades, or were mistreated during the last 185 years,
showing damage and signs of cleaning. Truly uncirculated
examples, such as the present piece, are incredibly
rare. Both PCGS and NGC have graded only a handful pieces
finer, scarcely available to collectors.
The present piece is
boldly struck, with all details on both sides being
virtually complete. All radial stars in the stars are
visible, and the under digit of the 4 is clearly visible
as well, indicating that this is an early die state.
Wholesome and totally original.
