    1807 BD-1 Quarter Eagle, AU53
    Attractive Type Coin

    1807 $2 1/2 BD-1, R.3, AU53 PCGS. CAC. Bass-Dannreuther Die State b/b, lightly cracked. BD-1 is the only die pairing of the 1807 quarter eagle, and its reverse is shared with the dimes struck this year. The BD-1 reverse was a hardy die, and since the Draped Bust dime of this year shared its reverse design with the quarter eagle and was virtually the same diameter, it was crossed over for coinage of both denominations.

    Only 6,812 quarter eagles were struck in 1807. Although a small total, it was the highest annual mintage of this denomination since its introduction in 1796. John Dannreuther estimates a survivorship of 250 to 350 pieces, making the issue popular as a type coin. Nonetheless, few examples carry CAC endorsement. This representative displays partly lustrous yellow-gold surfaces and excellent eye appeal. Trivial strike softness is noted at the centermost high points. (NGC ID# BFVY, Variety PCGS# 45514, Base PCGS# 7656)
