Description

Near-Mint 1798 Large Eagle, Small 8 Half Eagle

1798 $5 Large Eagle, Small 8 AU58 NGC. Breen-6430, BD-6, R.6. The Bass-Dannreuther reference on Early U.S. Gold Coin Varieties refers to this variety as a Large Eagle, Normal 8, and goes on to explain: "It is not small, but the correct punch size--it matches the other digits of the year." This example is boldly struck, if typically soft over the center of the reverse, with shimmering, semiprooflike fields and rich lime-green toning. Several heavy vertical adjustment marks are noted across Liberty's portrait. Slightly worn with numerous wispy pinscratches and hairlines on each side.(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# BFX5, PCGS# 8079)
