1795 BD-8 Small Eagle Five Dollar1795 $5 Small Eagle Genuine PCGS. Breen-6416, BD-8, High R.5. The PCGS number ending in .92 suggests Cleaning as the reason, or perhaps one of the reasons, that PCGS deemed this coin not gradable. In our opinion, this coin has the details of an AU specimen that has been cleaned.
The obverse die was used with three different reverse dies, and all three varieties are equally rare with 40 to 60 survivors from each die pair. A pleasing piece struck in greenish-yellow gold, this half eagle has faint hairlines that suggest cleaning. The surfaces are satiny with slight central weakness but a decent strike. The impression is well centered with full borders. A few other small scratches and surface marks are mostly trivial. This example probably ranks among the 10 finest of the variety.
