Attractive 1800 BD-5 Half Eagle, MS601800 $5 MS60 NGC. Breen-6438, BD-5, R.3. The obverse has a thin crack through IBER, and has had clash marks lapped off the die, state d in John Dannreuther's notation. The reverse has several cracks in the lower part of the die, described as state d by Dannreuther, just before the terminal state of this die. Most of the cracks are heavy, although a light crack from the arrows crosses the left shield border, and up to the first stripe. That crack is visible in the Dannreuther plate, but is unlisted by him. This lovely green-gold example has full luster with lightly abraded fields and a few faint lines. A small planchet chip is evident near star 8. (Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25NW, PCGS# 8082)
