    Description

    1824/1 Quarter Eagle, BD-1, XF45
    High-End for the Grade

    1824/1 $2 1/2 BD-1, R.5, XF45 PCGS. CAC. Bass-Dannreuther Die State a/a, as always. Just a single variety is known for this rare issue which survives to the limited extant of only 50 to 60 pieces. The reverse is the same as was used for the 1821 quarter eagle, as well as the 1825 BD-1 and BD-2 varieties. The obverse is a leftover 1821 die, overdated to 1824, with the flag of the underlying 1 evident to the left of the diagonal of the primary 4. This Choice XF representative is slightly soft in the extreme centers, more a product of insufficient die pressure rather than wear, as just slight friction is detected over the high points of the design. Deep yellow-gold patina encompasses both sides, and the eye appeal is exceptional for the grade. Housed in an old green label holder and CAC-endorsed. (NGC ID# BFW4, Variety PCGS# 45517, Base PCGS# 7663)
