Richly Patinated, Lustrous 1803/2 Five Dollar1803/2 $5 AU58 NGC. BD-1, R.4. Bass-Dannreuther Obverse State c / Reverse State c. This is an easily attributed variety due to the obvious overdate and the blundered TY on the obverse. The T is missing its right foot, and the Y is missing part of its left foot. There is another obverse that shows the 1803/2 overdate that was only used on the BD-4 die pairing. Nineteenth-century numismatist W. Elliot Woodward called them the First Overdate and Second Overdate, but on the latter the T is perfect. This piece, despite the presence of a couple of die cracks on the reverse, is still from a fairly early state of that die, which was employed until the cracks became breaks and a terminal rim cud formed. This piece shows light wear over lustrous reddish-gold surfaces. Abrasions are scattered and minor. The lower shield, arrow shafts, and left (facing) claw on the reverse show noticeable adjustment marks.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25NY, PCGS# 8084)
