    1806/4 BD-1 Quarter Eagle, MS61
    8x5 Stars, Some Prooflike Flash

    1806/4 $2 1/2 8x5 Stars MS61 NGC. BD-1, High R.4. Bass-Dannreuther Die State b/b. The most frequently seen die state for this low-mintage quarter eagle, with just 1,136 pieces struck. As expected with such a low production, the surfaces display prooflike tendencies, although the reflectivity is somewhat tempered by light abrasions. Diagonal adjustment marks are visible on the reverse eagle and clouds.

    The overdate is bold on this example, which is one of the few Mint State coins available. Only a dozen or so examples exist in Uncirculated condition. The obverse die was on its last legs when the coin was struck, with several fine, spiderlike die cracks among the stars and at the periphery. A noticeable crack at LIBERTY later developed into a cud -- the terminal state of the die -- and production for the issue ended. The reverse die was later used on 1807 dimes. Census: 2 in 61, 6 finer (4/14).(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# BFVW, PCGS# 7654)

    Weight: 4.37 grams

    Metal: 91.67% Gold, 8.33% Copper
