    1805 BD-1 Quarter Eagle, AU Details
    Late Die State

    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.
