Ron Guth: The 1829 is one of the more common dates of the type, though it is not seen as often as dates like the 1828 and 1832-1835 (unlike some of those dates, the 1829 has never been found in hoards). Collectors are able to find circulated examples with relative ease and even Mint State examples are not hard to find. Most Mint State examples fall into the MS-63 grade, with good distribution in the MS-62 and MS-64 grades, as well. Red-Brown examples are very scarce and full Red examples are exceedingly rare (PCGS has certified only one Red example...a single MS-64 Red).
