Description

    XF Sharpness 1796 Quarter Eagle
    With Stars, BD-3

    1796 $2 1/2 Stars -- Plugged, Harshly Cleaned -- NGC Details. XF. Breen-6114, BD-3, High R.5. Estimates of just 30 to 40 survivors of the only 1796 With Stars variety suggest their considerable importance, regardless of their overall quality or appearance. This piece is one that will see considerable demand, since it will prove to be affordable compared to problem-free examples. A hole at 12 o'clock was carefully plugged, and the E in LIBERTY was reengraved with moderate skill, as were part of the eagle's tail and the arrow feathers. Portions of the surfaces are whizzed, affecting obverse stars 13 to 15. Despite its faults, the present coin will allow many collectors to obtain an example of this challenging and rare first-year date.(Registry values: P10) (NGC ID# BFVN, PCGS# 7647)
