Die Variety: This is the same obverse die used to coin all known 1802 quarter eagles. The reverse die shows the leaf in the branch not touching the I of AMERICA, the only reverse used in this year with this feature. The reverse die was also used to coin the rare 1804 BD-1 quarter eagle as well as dimes of the 1802 JR-4 and 1804 JR-1 varieties.

Die State: Obverse and reverse die state b/b. Light crack to the left of the first S of STATES.

Estimated mintage for the variety: 400 to 800 coins.

Estimated surviving population: 30 to 35 coins.

Strike: The strike is sharp with most of the central elements present, including the reverse, which shows partial breast feathers on the eagle. The strike is well balanced and the surfaces are well preserved for this design and denomination.

Surfaces: Appealing surfaces are seen throughout. Close scrutiny reveals traces of mint reflectivity within the fields. The obverse and reverse are uniform bright yellow gold with no signs of toning.

Commentary: This is the most difficult die marriage to find of the three 1802 quarter eagle varieties; although the die variations are considered minor, they are easily discernible. The fact that this reverse die was used over three years to coin some rare and popular varieties adds further interest -- especially as it was used for both dimes and quarter eagles.

Q. David Bowers: If you have been following the narrative and viewing the illustrations of these early quarter eagles, likely you are just as excited as I am. We have a rendezvous with numismatic history here -- the first such auction offering ever.
