David Akers (1975/88): Although sometimes lumped together with the type issued from 1821 to 1827, the quarter eagles from 1829 to 1834 are a distinctly different type. The diameter is smaller and the thickness has been correspondingly increased. The borders are beaded and the head of Liberty has also been modified. The 1829, despite the fact it has the lowest mintage of the type, is the most common date and the most easily obtainable in gem condition since some were undoubtedly saved as souvenirs of the first year of a new design.
