Item Description:
(BD-1) A lovely AU58 example of this rare Capped Bust quarter eagle type. This beautiful design was short-lived and sound examples are extremely challenging to locate in the marketplace. The coin was once lightly cleaned (as the vast majority of the series!) but has since naturally retoned with reddish shades at the rims. Overall the surfaces are prooflike
