    1807 BD-1 Mint State Quarter Eagle

    1807 $2 1/2 MS61 NGC. Breen-6124. BD-1, R.3. The obverse stars are arranged seven and six, with the flag atop the 1 in the date solidly over Liberty's hair curl. On the reverse the stars between the clouds and eagle are large, UNITED is high, and there are 13 arrows.
    The obverse die is unique to this single pairing known for the 1807 quarter eagle, but the reverse workhorse die was reused repeatedly: for the 1805 quarter eagle, for the 1806/4 BD-1 quarter eagles, for the 1806/5 BD-2 quarter eagles, for the 1807 BD-1 quarter eagles, and then for more than 150,000 1807 dimes!
    Although the obverse die is unique to the BD-1, there is a late-state-obverse example in the Smithsonian Institution, with die cracks through the base of the date to star 2, and another from star 2 to star 6. The present Mint State example is boldly struck on both sides, displaying a wealth of attractive detail. This is an early die state with none of the die cracks mentioned in the BD reference. The fields are semiprooflike, with attractive reddish color that is more prominent on the reverse, around the border. An excellent candidate for a type set.(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# BFVY, PCGS# 7656)
