Description 1830 $2 1/2 MS62 NGC. CAC. BD-1, R.4. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Bass-Dannreuther Die State a/a. The reduced-diameter Capped Head Left series (1829 to 1834) consists of only low-mintage issues, representing a challenging subset for any collector of early Mint State gold. This brilliant, semiprooflike example was struck from obviously polished dies, with the swirling, raised polish lines still evident and undiminished by die use. The coin displays sharp medium-gold coloration with deeper orange patina forming at the margins and high points of the motifs. A bold strike shows only slight weakness at Liberty's curls above and adjacent to the ear, and likewise at the eagle's left (facing) wing at the shield junction. Mint luster is pervasive and strong, as is the eye appeal confirmed by the CAC approval. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $65.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $24675.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
