    1807 Quarter Eagle, BD-1, Wheat-Gold AU58
    Last Year of the Capped Bust Right Design

    1807 $2 1/2 BD-1, R.3, AU58 NGC. Only the single die pair was made to strike the last-year-of-type 1807 Capped Bust to Right quarter eagles, as the Capped Bust to Left design would supersede them in the following year, fashioned by the talented-but-unappreciated engraver John Reich. The reported mintage of 6,812 pieces may have included some 1806-dated coins, but given their frequency of appearance, most were of the 1807 date. This availability makes the 1807 issue ideal for type-coin purposes. This near-Mint State piece is also an excellent representative of the issue, showing a scattering of small contact marks but none overt or distracting. Some strike weakness appears in the centers of each side, with slight planchet adjustment marks on the reverse shield. Attractive wheat-gold color prevails on each side. A tiny die crack is just forming through the first two digits of the date, not yet to the "defined" Bass-Dannreuther Die State b/b. Census for the 1807: 32 in 64, 41 finer (2/15).
