Choice AU 1804 14 Star Reverse Quarter Eagle, BD-2

1804 $2 1/2 14 Star Reverse AU55 NGC. Breen-6119, BD-2, R.4. This coin is easily recognized not only by the 14 stars on the reverse, but also because it is the only Robert Scot-designed quarter eagle "with an obvious cross pattern of stars," as Bass-Dannreuther puts it. For a coin of the era with such a small mintage, estimated in Bass-Dannreuther between 2,324 and 2,827 coins, the survival rate is unusually high, in the neighborhood of 6.5%-9%. The reverse of this variety was also used to strike the slightly rarer JR-2 dimes, a move that appears to be willful economy on the part of early Mint personnel.
This bright, yellow-gold piece shows very little of the often-heavy reddish patina common to most early U.S. gold. Generous amounts of mint luster remain on each side of this lightly handled AU coin. Just a few small abrasions are scattered over each side but none are worthy of individual mention.(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# BFVT, PCGS# 7652)
