Description:
1804 14 Star Reverse Dime, BD-2, MS62
1804 $2 1/2 14 Star Reverse MS62 PCGS. Breen-6119, BD-2, R.4. This lovely example of the 1804 quarter eagle with 14 Star Reverse would make a fitting acquisition to accompany the James A. Stack 1804 14 Star Reverse dime (JR-2, R.5) that is also in the present sale, as both the dimes and quarter eagles were made with the same dies. This was purely an economic and practical measure at the early Mint, as so few quarter eagles were struck each year that there was little need for custom-produced dies for that single denomination. The reverse stars show an obvious cross pattern, the only Robert Scot quarter eagle reverse with such a star arrangement. In particular, the eagle's left (facing) wing partially obscures star 1, the top leftmost star. Walter Breen believed that this die was a leftover reverse from around 1798, but opinions are mixed, since the cross pattern is not as absolutely uniform as some of the earlier such dies. Opinions are similarly divided as to whether the quarter eagles or dimes were struck first, but both John Dannreuther and the John Reich dime researchers believe the dimes were struck last.
The obverse die, which was used with both the BD-1 and BD-2 13 Star and 14 Star reverses, respectively, has a fairly large 1, a large 8, a wide, round 0, and a small 4 in the date. The present greenish-gold specimen shows considerable contrast between the fields and devices. Numerous parallel adjustment marks are noted through the center obverse, although they are scarcely visible without a loupe. The reverse shows a few light signs of contact under a loupe, none remotely worthy of singular mention, and yet both sides retain significant appeal, a combination of the radiant luster, fairly well executed strike, and absence of mentionable post-strike impairments. Population: 7 in 62, 2 finer (7/07).(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 25F8, PCGS# 7652)
