Description:
Brilliant 1795 BD-5 Eagle, MS61
1795 $10 13 Leaves MS61 NGC. Breen-6830, Taraszka-5, BD-5, R.5. Half eagles, followed by eagles a short time later, were the first gold coins that the U.S. Mint produced, starting at the beginning of August 1795. Five die varieties of eagle's are known from the combination of three obverse dies and three reverse dies. Among the five varieties is the famous Nine Leaves reverse, a major rarity in early U.S. numismatics. The four varieties with 13 leaves on the reverse range from the plentiful BD-1, to the scarce BD-2, and the rare BD-4 and BD-5 die combinations.
This is the final use of both dies, the obverse lapped with several shortened star points, and the reverse lightly cracked, with the heavy die chip near the first A of AMERICA that developed in its earlier die marriage of BD-4. The reverse die cracks join the tops of UNITED STA, ATES, and OF, the latter crack continuing to the die chip.
Both sides are highly lustrous with lovely light green-gold color and hints of light orange toning on the high points. The obverse and reverse fields are reflective, and exhibit the usual quota of small surface marks that are expected for the grade. Slight adjustment marks at the center of the reverse obliterate the eagle's breast details. The obverse has a tiny rim bruise below the 5. A minuscule mark is located just right of the eagle's body, and it looks like a broken gas bubble in the original planchet.
