1799 Small Stars Reverse Half Eagle1799 $5 Small Stars Reverse AU50 NGC. CAC. Breen-6433, BD-1, High R.5. Bass-Dannreuther Die State b/c, with the faintest beginnings of a die crack through the bottoms of stars 11 and 12. Like all other die pairs of the 1799 half eagle, the BD-1 is rare in an absolute sense. The winning bidder is sure to prize this AU50 example. The yellow-gold surfaces remain amply lustrous, with surprisingly few abrasions for the grade assigned. Only slight striking softness is present through the centers, though this makes the reverse appear perhaps more worn than it really is. Overall, a thoroughly appealing coin.
