Description

Choice AU 1802/1 Half Eagle
Unabraded Surfaces, BD-8

1802/1 $5 AU55 PCGS. Breen-6440, BD-8, R.4. Bass-Dannreuther Die State c/b with a faint crack descending between the UNI in UNITED but no indication of the eventual nearby cud. BD-8 is promptly identified by a lengthy, bold die line between the R in AMERICA and the point of a leaf, a minor engraver's blunder that undoubtedly caused brief consternation on his part more than two centuries ago. This is a pleasing Choice AU example with a broad band of luster at the borders and additional luster throughout raised design elements. The strike is uncommonly sharp at the centers, and is uniformly bold aside from softness on the left (facing) claw. Light wear on the cap and drapery is from light handling long ago, as there are no remotely consequential abrasions.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25NX, PCGS# 8083)
