Description:
Rare 1799 Large Stars Reverse Half Eagle
1799 $5 Large Stars Reverse AU55 PCGS. Breen-6436, B. 3-F, Miller-37, R.6. Mint records indicate that only 7,451 half eagles were struck at the Philadelphia Mint in 1799. Not all of these coins may have been dated 1799, and it is likely that some 1798 examples were also included. On the other hand, the delivery for calendar year 1800 may have included some coins dated 1799. Regardless, there can be no doubt that the 1799 is a rare and desirable issue with survivors of all die marriages being more challenging to locate than those of the 1798 Large 8, 13 Stars, 1800, 1802/1, 1803/2, 1804 Small 8, 1804 Small 8 Over Large 8, 1805, 1806 Pointed Top 6, 1806 Round Top 6, and 1807. This example is bright with deep reddish-gold undertones backlighting yellow-gold highlights. The impression appears sharp throughout and the coin is well centered on the planchet. Prooflike in finish with ample remnants of the original sheen despite light rub and some scuffiness from circulation. A rare die pairing the shows noticeable clashing on the reverse.(Registry values: P4) (PCGS# 98081)
