Description:
Early Die State 1807 BD-1 Quarter Eagle, AU58
1807 $2 1/2 AU58 NGC. CAC. BD-1, R.3. Brilliant and frosty green-gold with exceptional eye appeal. Most details are bold, with sharp central obverse and reverse details. A few scattered surface marks on each side are unimportant.

Die State.
An example of the early die state before reverse clash marks appeared

Condition Census.
As the most plentiful early quarter eagle issue, many Mint State and Choice AU examples survive. This is the ideal date for a type collector to acquire.

Appearances.
Plated in Stack's 1995 catalog.

Obverse 1. Serif of 1 overlaps hair, left serif of 7 lightly touches 0, and right corner of 7 lightly touches bust.
lib are closer than BERTY. Seven stars left and six right. Stars 1, 7, and 13 distant from hair, cap, and bust. Star 8 is close to Y. Stars 11, 12, 13 more closely spaced than others.
State a. Perfect.

Reverse Die. Star 11 is sharply recut with a total of 10 points.
All E's are missing their upper left serif. D is equally close to the third and fourth feathers. ITED are each slightly higher than their adjacent letter to the left. E and D lean slightly right. First S is slightly low and A is slightly high. The upright of E is over the space between clouds 4 and 5. First A in AMERICA close to the third and fourth feathers. Final A touches the claw. AME and RI are close while ER and ICA are widely spaced. Leaves join I under the right foot and C at the center. Five berries with one stemless, two having short stems, and two having long stems. Only one arrow point extends past the right side of U with the outer arrow point below center of that letter. Thirteen large stars with only star 5 in the top row not touching the clouds. Star 12 has a point between the lower and upper beak with another point touching the ribbon. Star 13 is isolated in the field, not touching devices.
State a. Perfect. State b. Light clash marks.

Heritage Commentary.
This reverse was earlier used to produce quarter eagles, 1805 BD-1, 1806 BD-1, BD-2, and dimes, 1807 JR-1.

Consignor Commentary.
None
