    1802/1 Quarter Eagle, BD-1, XF40 Details

    1802/1 $2 1/2 BD-1, R.4 -- Tooled, Repaired, Cleaned -- ANACS. XF40 Details. Bass-Dannreuther Die State a/b. This is an evenly struck example with bold border regions and slight weakness on the central high points. The coin presents as pale yellow-gold and smooth to the unaided eye, although a 10x loupe reveals surprisingly well-hidden tooling marks in all of the fields with light cleaning overall. The faint remnants of what appears to be a hand-scratched date (1821?) can be seen in the field to the right of the primary date, not completely effaced by the repair work. BD-1 is scarce in all grades with only 90 to 120 pieces believed known. This coin is much more appealing than the holder notations would suggest. (Variety PCGS# 45506, Base PCGS# 7650)

    Weight: 4.37 grams

    Metal: 91.67% Gold, 8.33% Copper

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
