    Description

    1802/1 BD-3 Quarter Eagle, VF20
    Estimated 60 to 75 Examples Extant

    1802/1 $2 1/2 BD-3, R.5, VF20 PCGS. Bass-Dannreuther Die State b/b, with a tiny crack that connects the eagle's wing to the rim at 2 o'clock. The reverse of the 1802/1 BD-3 quarter eagle features distinctive repunching on the first star below the first S in STATES. Interestingly, the same reverse die was used to coin dimes in 1802 (before the production of these quarter eagles) and 1803. Deep orange-gold surfaces exhibit significant evidence of friction from circulation, but definition remains bold. Central strike detail is slightly soft. Adjustment marks appear at the rim near stars 11 through 13.
    From The Key Coin Collection. (NGC ID# 25F6, Variety PCGS# 45508, Base PCGS# 7650)
