1805 Capped Bust Right Quarter Eagle. BD-1, the only known dies. Rarity-4. EF-40 (NGC).Attractively toned in a blend of pinkish-rose and honey-gold, both sides of this inviting early quarter eagle also reveal faint remnants of original luster as the surfaces dip into a light. Near-fully denticulated around the borders from a well centered strike, all major design elements are boldly defined. BD Die State b/a.<p>Seldom requested by depositors or by banks, the quarter eagle was not a heavily used denomination in commerce - that honor belonged to the half eagle As a result, none of the early quarter eagles produced in any appreciable quantity the first dozen years of the denominations existence. Such was the case in 1805 when a mere 1,781 pieces are believed to have been struck, all from a single pair of dies. Because of the low mintage figures, wear and tear proved to not be a major issue for the reverse die. This reverse was first used with all of the 1805 pieces, but also all of the 1806 and 1807 quarter eagles, and since they were approximately the same diameter, this reverse was even employed for the 1807 Capped Bust dimes before it was finally retired. In a rarefied field, the 1805 is one of the rarer overall issues with an estimated 100 to 150 surviving examples extant, with all but a tiny handful of Mint State coins. With its overall pleasing surfaces, this lightly circulated specimen will appeal to the attentive bidder.
