Description

Attractive 1798 BD-6 Half Eagle, AU53

1798 $5 Large Eagle, Large 8 AU53 NGC. Breen-6430, BD-6, R.5. The obverse has a bisecting crack from the B of LIBERTY through the forecurl and profile to star 13, probably terminating the use of the die. The reverse is also cracked along the right side, just past the O in OF to the right wing.
John Dannreuther suggests that 30 to 40 examples of the BD-6 die combination remain, although the actual total might be slightly more, perhaps as high as 50 pieces. The present specimen is an attractive example of the surviving population with splashes of lilac and pale blue toning over the vibrant orange-gold surfaces. Considerable luster remains on each side.(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# BFX5, PCGS# 8079)
