    1802/'1' BD-2 Quarter Eagle, XF Details
    Dual Denomination Die, Scarce in all Grades

    1802/1 $2 1/2 BD-2, High R.5 -- Repaired -- PCGS Genuine Secure. XF Details. Bass-Dannreuther Die State b/b. A faint crack extends from the rim left of the first S in STATES. The I in AMERICA is free from the leaf, confirming the attribution. BD-2 is the rarest of three varieties for the year. Possibly 30 to 35 pieces are known. The reverse was also used to strike 1802 JR-4 dimes, 1804 BD-1 quarter eagles, and 1804 JR-1 dimes. There is some dispute as to whether these quarter eagles were struck before of after the 1802 JR-4 dimes. Orange-gold surfaces have been smoothed, and the centers are incompletely struck. The peripheral elements are better-defined. An important coin for the early gold specialist.
    From The Indian Collection, Part II.
