    1807 Capped Bust Right Quarter Eagle, MS62
    BD-1, In-Demand Early Gold Type

    1807 $2 1/2 MS62 NGC. BD-1, R.3. Bass-Dannreuther Die State a/a. Only a single die pair is known for the 1807 Bust right quarter eagles, which were reportedly struck in the amount of 6,812 coins. While such a mintage seems small today, in comparison to the other dates in the Capped Bust Right series (which this issue concludes), it is more than several other years' totals combined. This gives it obvious type-coin status, and it is ranked, in fact, the commonest of the 1796-1807 quarter eagle issues.

    This piece shows attractive yellow-gold luster on surfaces that are lightly marked. Planchet adjustment marks appear in the central portrait of Liberty and around much of the left-side obverse rim. A few tiny marks appear in the obverse fields. The reverse shows some typical strike softness on the upper and left shield lines and the left eagle's claw. This piece overall is a great-looking example of this in-demand early type. Census: 15 in 62, 5 finer (2/14).
    From the Collection of Donald E. Bently, sold for the benefit of the Bently Foundation.(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# BFVY, PCGS# 7656)
