Pleasing 1804 14 Star Reverse Quarter Eagle, AU53

1804 $2 1/2 14 Star Reverse AU53 NGC. BD-2, R.4. A classic blundered die variety. Instead of a proper count of 13 stars to represent the original colonies, this reverse die was sunk with 14 stars. Breen believed that the die was cut in 1798 and set aside due to the error, only to be used six years later--inadvertently or not--to strike 1804 quarter eagles and, subsequently, the 1804 JR-2 dimes. Bass, however, felt that the small size of the stars on the 1804 BD-2 reverse die would not have been engraved by Scot in 1798 and was actually created at a later date. Regardless of the origin of the die, this variety is tangible evidence of the struggles encountered by our first Mint. Reasonably struck for the issue with light straw-gold coloration throughout, although adjustment marks on the reverse between 7 and 11 o'clock has resulted in localized weakness on the corresponding area of the obverse rim. An eye-appealing coin nonetheless. Census: 5 in 53, 49 finer (8/08).(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# BFVT, PCGS# 7652)
