1834 Capped Bust $2 1/2 PCGS XF45

DLRC #: 1340677 // PCGS #: 7674

The 1834 Capped Bust Quarter Eagle is an underappreciated classic numismatic rarity. Hailing from a mintage of just 4,000 pieces, fewer than 20 grading events have been recorded by both services. Auction appearances are even rarer as a finer example has not appeared in public sale in over 15 years! In fact, it is one of the few pieces that the Pogue family did not acquire in their massive gold collection that was recently sold. This piece in particular exudes nice luster and a smooth orange-gold surface with a flashy reverse. For the collector who appreciates rarity and long-term potential this is the ideal piece that is rarely offered.
