    1804 BD-2 14 Stars Reverse Quarter Eagle
    Second Known Late Die State Piece

    1804 $2 1/2 14 Star Reverse--Improperly Cleaned--NCS. AU Details. Breen-6119, BD-2, R.4. Dannreuther State c/a. John Dannreuther described the vertical die crack in the left obverse field, and then noted "the only example seen is the ANS coin." The present example is the second recorded example with that vertical die crack, starting from the curl opposite star 3, vertically upward until it disappears in the field right of star 7. This is probably the terminal state of the obverse die. This bright green-gold example shows evidence of cleaning but it is still an attractive and sharply detailed specimen.
