Description:
1805 Quarter Eagle, BD-1, Choice XF
1805 $2 1/2 XF45 PCGS. Breen-6121, BD-1, R.4. The only variety known. The 1805 quarter eagle is a particularly interesting issue. This is actually the only quarter eagle with an obverse die that was used in production, reheated, overdated, hardened, and then used to strike a different-dated issue. While there are numerous instances of overdated dies, usually the die was not used in the first year, and it is very rare for one to have been put into production twice. The reverse die was also a workhorse; it was used to strike 1805 BD-1, 1806/5 BD-2, 1807 BD-1, and all 1807-dated dimes (over 150,000 were struck).
Bright-orange gold patina covers the surfaces. Scattered abrasions are mostly light and inoffensive, and several faint adjustment marks are seen in the center of the obverse. A very shallow, nearly imperceptible scratch from the mouth of Liberty to star 11 will identify this coin for future pedigree purposes. This piece exhibits bold definition for the grade. One of only 100 to 150 examples believed to exist.(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 25F9, PCGS# 7653)
