    Pleasing AU 1802/1 Quarter Eagle, BD-3

    1802/1 $2 1/2 AU50 NGC. Breen-6118, BD-3, R.5. Bass-Dannreuther Die State b/b, the reverse with small die cracks off the right (facing) wing and the upper lift corner of the shield, though the Bass-Dannreuther reference introduces some confusion by referring to the latter marker as a die scratch elsewhere. Repunching on star 1 on the reverse is the major diagnostic. A pleasing example of a rare variety, this luminous yellow-gold piece shows scattered wheat accents and a number of reverse adjustment marks. Strongly appealing and worthy of a high-level cabinet. Certified population figures are distorted by resubmissions.
