1805 BD-1 Quarter Eagle, AU Details
1805 $2 1/2 BD-1, R.4 -- Cleaned -- Details NGC. AU.
Bass-Dannreuther Die State c/b, with thin obverse die cracks. The
cleaning is old, and this AU-level 1805 quarter eagle has since
acquired pleasing olive-gold patina with small peach-orange
overtones. Slight brightness in the fields is the only immediate
giveaway of an old cleaning. The strike is even and generally
sharp, except in the centers. Planchet adjustment marks (mint made)
appear across the reverse shield. The overall eye appeal is
pleasing for a Details-graded coin.
