Description

Choice AU 1805 Quarter Eagle, BD-1
Interesting Multipurpose Dies

1805 $2 1/2 AU55 PCGS. BD-1, R.4. Bass-Dannreuther Die State b / a. The die that produced this obverse is "unique among quarter eagles and one of only a very few for any denomination that was heated for a second time, overdated, hardened again, and put back into service!" per Bass-Dannreuther, in order to produce the 1806/5 BD-2, "with a cracked die, no less!" At any rate, the 1805-dated pairing is the only known marriage for that year. The reverse die was also reused, to strike all quarter eagles dated 1806 and 1807, as well as all 150,000-plus 1807 dimes. The obverse here shows a tiny crack joining stars 5-7, but as yet no trace of the later crack joining the tops of 805 appears. The medium yellow-gold surfaces show just light, high-point circulation wear on this Choice AU example. Some prominent planchet adjustment marks appear in the center reverse and near the upper rim, but there are few signs of overt contact.(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 25F9, PCGS# 7653)
