    Near-Mint BD-2 1802/1 Two and a Half

    1802/1 $2 1/2 AU58 NGC. Breen-6118, BD-2, High R.5. A mere 3,035 pieces were struck of the 1802 quarter eagle. Probably more than 250 pieces exist today in all grades, making the 1802 the second most "common" date in the series--"common" being relative, of course, when speaking of this challenging design type. As with many other dates in the Capped Bust Right series, the 1802 is known for soft central details and adjustment marks. This attractive example has bright surfaces. As expected, the centers are weakly struck, and light diagonal adjustment marks occur on the reverse. The surfaces are lightly abraded, but the only marks worth mentioning are a shallow planchet flake in the exergue above the 8 in the date, and a Z-shaped scratch just below the AM of AMERICA on the reverse.
