Description

Near-Mint 1802/1 Two and a Half
BD-1, 'Spike Shield' Variety

1802/1 $2 1/2 AU58 NGC. CAC. BD-1, R.4. Bass-Dannreuther Die State a/b. The "Spike Shield" 1802 variety with a lengthy die line from the left shield corner into the left wing. All 1802 quarter eagles are traditionally designated as overdates but likely only exhibit flaws from the logotype punch. The present near-Mint representative is unabraded aside from minor marks near the rightmost reverse star. A trace of struck-in grease is noted near obverse stars 12 and 13. The obverse is wheat-gold while the reverse is brighter with a semiprooflike field and splashes of orange-red toning. The strike is sharp at the borders though the centers show softness. Overall, a desirable example of this scarce date.(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 25F6, PCGS# 7650)
