    Near-Mint 1802/1 Quarter Eagle
    BD-1, Double-Punched Reverse Star

    1802/1 $2 1/2 AU58 PCGS. Breen-6118, BD-1, R.4. Obverse State b / Reverse State b. There were 3,035 quarter eagles struck in 1802 from three pairs of dies. This die pair is distinguished by the double punching on star 1 on the reverse. John Dannreuther has estimated that the mintage for this die pair was between 750 and 1,250 coins. And from that tiny estimated production run only 60 to 75 pieces are believed known today in all grades. This is a bright yellow-gold example that has the semireflective fields one would expect from such a low-production coin. The centers are weakly defined, and there are no mentionable post-striking marks. However, the center of the obverse shows a few faint die adjustment marks. Population: 8 in 58, 16 finer (6/10).(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 4GB5, PCGS# 7650)

    Weight: 4.37 grams
