1796 Quarter Eagle, AU Details
Popular No Stars Design, BD-2

1796 $2 1/2 No Stars -- Mount Removed, Repaired -- NGC Details. AU. BD-2, R.4. Bass-Dannreuther Die State d/b. The 1796 Capped Bust Right quarter eagle with No Stars is an incredibly popular one-year design type, from a mintage of just 897 pieces. Stars were added to the design later in the year, but the No Stars type has always been a favorite with collectors. Two varieties are known for the No Stars type, with this coin representing the more available BD-2 variety, with normal length arrows on the reverse. The BD-2 has a surviving population of 100-125 examples in all grades.

The present coin is well-detailed and brightly lustrous, with a few planchet adjustment marks on the bust. Some evidence of repair is seen at the 9 in the date and the NGC holder indicates the coin has been removed from jewelry. An affordable example of this important first-year-of-denomination early gold type.
From the Collection of Donald E. Bently, sold for the benefit of the Bently Foundation.(Registry values: P10) (NGC ID# 25F2, PCGS# 7645)
