    1806/4 Quarter Eagle, AU53
    Scarce BD-1, 8x5 Stars

    1806/4 $2 1/2 8x5 Stars AU53 PCGS. BD-1, High R.4. Bass-Dannreuther Die State b/b. A leftover 1804 obverse die was overdated 1806 and was then paired with the reverse of 1805 to strike this variety. This is the only use of this overdated obverse die, though the reverse was used all the way through the end of the type in 1807. Of the two 1806 quarter eagle varieties, BD-1 is the slightly more available, but with only 75 to 90 pieces believed extant, it is still exceedingly scarce in all grades. This pleasing AU representative displays bright green-gold patina with remnants of prooflike mirroring in the fields. The strike is soft in the centers, as is typically seen on this variety, with several diagonal roller marks seen across portions of the reverse. Abrasions, however, are minimal, and actual wear is light. Population: 4 in 53, 21 finer (6/14).
