Description

In-Demand 1796 No Stars Two and a Half
BD-2, Sharpness of VF

1796 $2 1/2 No Stars--Rim Filing--NGC Details. VF. Breen-6113, BD-2, R.4. The 1796 No Stars quarter eagle is the first year of the denomination and an important gold type coin. The BD-2 die marriage, with the arrows on the reverse extending about to the N in UNITED, constitutes the vast majority of the issue. This relatively affordable example may prove to be just the ticket for some forthright type collector on a budget. The surfaces are evenly worn, with muted reddish-gold and lilac-toned surfaces. There are many small abrasions, but the only ones of note are a minor scratch in the obverse field at 2 o'clock and a short planchet depression behind the Liberty cap. There is no evidence of rim filing per se, but the left obverse rim is lower than the rest of that side, and there is evidence of tooling in the lower left obverse field. Much pleasing detail remains, consistent with the VF grade level.
