    1804 BD-2 Quarter Eagle, AU Details
    14 Stars Reverse

    1804 $2 1/2 14 Star Reverse -- Mount Removed -- NGC Details. AU. BD-2, R.4. Bass-Dannreuther Die State a/a. The reverse of the BD-2 variety is noted for a cross pattern of the 14 field stars as well as the cross-denominational use of the reverse die on 1804 dimes. This example is a bit overly bright, yet it retains nice appeal. The only overt signs of the mount removal are slight rim irregularities between 2 and 3 o'clock on the obverse and near 9 o'clock on the reverse, as well as an old polishing resulting in the coin's bright yellow coloration. Bold details remain, with blending on the eagle's tail the only weakness (as often seen on circulated examples of the issue). A few abrasions exist, the most noteworthy one being a short scrape between star 1 and the curls.(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# BFVT, PCGS# 7652)

    Weight: 4.37 grams

    Metal: 91.67% Gold, 8.33% Copper
