Sale", 10/2000:1653, $21,850.00, "Breen 1", "Barring
extremely rare 1834 No Motto Quarter Eagle, this date is easily rarer than
any other date of this type. Of more importance, however, is the
proportion of Mint State survivors to the total number of survivors for
1833 versus the other dates of this type. From this standpoint, the
rarity of high grade 1833 Quarter Eagles becomes crystal clear."
