Key Date 1804 Quarter, VF35, B-1

1804 25C VF35 PCGS. B-1, R.3. The more available of the two 1804 quarter varieties for the year, distinguished by an obverse that shows a gap between the 4 in the date and the truncation of the bust, star 1 close to but not touching the hair, and a die gouge between stars 8 and 9. B-1 and B-2 share the same reverse.
With only 6,738 coins struck, the 1804 is the key date of the four-year Draped Bust, Heraldic Eagle quarter series. Most extant coins are found in lower grades, as few examples were apparently saved at the time of issue.
Soft lilac-gray patina displays somewhat deeper hues on the obverse of this Choice VF specimen, with bright golden iridescence in the protected areas of both sides. The design elements retain considerable detail, and the surfaces reveal no more marks than what would be expected for a coin that underwent light to moderate circulation. Adjustment marks are absent, as is often the case with this series. Population for the date: 8 in 35, 16 finer (3/09).
From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.(Registry values: P7) (NGC ID# 23RB, PCGS# 5312)
