Description:
1798 Half Eagle, Large 8, MS62
Heraldic Eagle Reverse, BD-5
1798 $5 Large Eagle, Large 8, 13 Star Reverse MS62 PCGS. CAC. Breen-6429, BD-5, High R.5. A substantial mintage of 24,687 half eagles was produced in 1798, including both Small Eagle and Heraldic Eagle designs. A total of eight die varieties are known, including the very scarce BD-5, with a large, level 8 in the date and the first A in AMERICA positioned above the fourth feather of the eagle's wing. The BD-5 probably represented 2,250-3,250 pieces of the reported mintage, with only about 30-40 examples still extant in all grades.
The present coin is a well-struck MS62 example with lustrous honey-gold surfaces and a minimum number of contact marks for the grade. The obverse shows a long die break from star 7 through the hair, to Liberty's shoulder. There is also a thicker line below ER in LIBERTY. Population: 9 in 62, 2 finer (7/11).
