Description:
Uncirculated 1798 Large Eagle, Small 8 Five Dollars
1798 $5 Large Eagle, Small 8 MS61 NGC. Breen-6431, B. 6-H, Miller-31, R.6. A mildly reflective light gold example of this scarce date and rare die variety. Three Small 8 dies were utilized, Breen 6-H is identified by the low location of the 8 in the date, furthest from the bust truncation. A well struck piece, save for the eagle's breast feathers and the hair northwest of the ear. No relevant marks are present, although a few short mint-made lintmarks are noted, and a trivial lamination, also as made, is found near the T in LIBERTY. The significance of this offering is obvious to the specialist, since another Uncirculated example of this variety may not appear again at auction for several years.(#8079) (Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 25NP, PCGS# 8079)
