Description

MS61 Certified 1807 Quarter Eagle

1807 $2 1/2 MS61 PCGS. Breen-6124. BD-1, R.3. The obverse stars are arranged seven and six, with the flag atop the 1 in the date solidly over Liberty's hair curl. Prominent arcing lathe lines are evident on Liberty's neck, and between hair strands. The obverse die was only used for this single marriage of 1807, totaling 6,812 strikes. On the reverse the stars between the clouds and eagle are large, UNITED is high, there are 13 arrows, and there are five berries. The reverse die saw extensive use on 1805, 1806, and 1807 quarter eagles, as well as 1807 dimes, more than 175,000 strikes for all varieties. The reverse die remained in excellent condition for all of the quarter eagles, only deteriorating toward the end of its use to produce the 1807 dimes.
This piece has splendid yellow luster with splashes of wispy orange toning especially evident on the reverse. The central obverse is a trifle weak, the result of reverse adjustment marks across the shield. A tiny rim disturbance is seen at 9:30 on the obverse. Population: 6 in 61, 21 finer (11/09).(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# BFVY, PCGS# 7656)
