Rare XF 1804 Two and a Half1804 $2 1/2 14 Star Reverse XF40 PCGS. Breen-6119, BD-2, R.4. The popular blundered die with 14 stars above the eagle instead of the proper 13 stars. One of only two 1804-dated varieties, and since the 13 Star Reverse (BD-1) is High R.6, BD-2 is integral to a date collection.
This is a predominantly straw-gold example with glimpses of orange toning near the borders. Generally sharply struck, although due to the die alignment, the obverse is softly defined at 8 o'clock on the obverse, and at 10 o'clock on the reverse. Lustrous and splendidly detailed for the XF40 grade. The obverse has a faint vertical hairlines, and the left obverse field has a few pinscratches. Encapsulated in a green label holder.
