1832 $2 1/2 BD-1, R.4 - Improperly Cleaned - NGC Details. AU. Bass-Dannreuther Die State a/c. Quarter eagle coinage in 1832 amounted to only 4,400 pieces, most of which was eventually melted for the heavy gold weight of the coins (a problem not remedied until 1834). Only 80-100 1832 quarter eagles are believed to survive in all grades. This AU-level coin displays rich reddish overtones atop yellow-gold surfaces. Partial luster remains despite faint hairlines that prevent a numeric grade from NGC. The stars and central devices are sharp. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
