Description:
Extraordinarily Well Struck 1804 Small 8 Five
BD-3, Near-Mint State
With Rich Red-Gold Coloration
1804 $5 Small 8 AU58 NGC. Breen-6443, BD-3, R.5. Bass-Dannreuther Obverse State c / Reverse State i. The terminology on these pieces can be confusing; Bass-Dannreuther call this and the other two related varieties the Normal 8, saying "former Small 8, but it is the correct 8 punch." One of the so-called Small 8 varieties, however, has a "Recut Normal 8" in BD terminology (the BD-4), and the so-called "Small Date/Large Date" actually has a "Normal/Large 8" according to Bass-Dannreuther.
They estimate this die pairing at R.5, or only 40-50 pieces known. The present near-Mint specimen displays rich reddish-gold surfaces. The strike is extraordinarily sharp, with strong hair details and full definition on the eagle's breast above the shield. There are only a few scattered minor marks, none noteworthy.
