1805 Quarter Eagle, BD-1, AU58
Amazing Double Strike
From the Ed Price Collection
1805 $2 1/2 -- Double Strike, First Strike Off Center -- AU58 NGC. Breen-6121, BD-1, R.4. The double strike is obvious on both sides, with considerable detail that develops with careful examination. Immediately obvious are Liberty's forecurl on the cheek and three star points at the upper edge of the cap. Closer inspection also reveals TY and three stars in the right obverse field, and a star at the end of the drapery. The reverse has considerable additional detail, including stars and the first A in AMERICA superimposed on the clouds.
When we offered the Ed Price Collection three years ago, Mr. Price commented:

"This coin is among my favorites in the collection. I have never seen or heard of any other error in the early quarter eagle series (1796-1807). This error is spectacular. Stu Levine and I drove to Bowers and Merena in New Hampshire to view lots for the Russ Logan sale in 2002. Stu was driving. He pulled a coin out of his pocket and asked for my opinion. I didn't say anything for a while. As I looked at the coin, I gradually saw more and more of the double strike on both the obverse and reverse. I had never seen an early quarter eagle error. This coin was high grade and problem-free and the error was clear. There were extra stars on both the obverse and reverse and many other interesting details. I was awed."


This piece displays bold definition over lovely greenish yellow-gold surfaces. The fields exhibit considerable satin luster and reflective, mirrored fields. A small dig in the left obverse field is the only noticeable mark. A few light adjustment marks appear on the bust.
Ex: Stuart Levine (11/2002); Ed Price (Heritage, 7/2008), lot 1461.(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 25F9, PCGS# 7653)
