Description:
Beautiful 1804 Small 8 Five, BD-1, MS62
1804 $5 Small 8 MS62 PCGS. Breen-6443, BD-1, High R.4. Bass-Dannreuther Die State II, die cracks on both sides with retained cud on reverse. The 1 is small, the 8 is small, the crosslet 4 is small on this BD-1 variety, although the 8 is technically called "Small" only to distinguish it from the repunched-date Small 8 Over Large 8. Bass-Dannreuther call this the Normal 8, Small 4 variety, noting that it is the "former Small 8, but it is the correct 8 punch." The overdate variety, with the Large 8 Over Small 8, was created when the die engraver mistakenly began the date with a larger punch for eagle rather than half eagles, then corrected his error. The 4 on this BD-1 variety, however, is noticeably smaller than the other three digits in the date. The 1 is missing its flag, and on the reverse there is a straight "graver line" from the top left shield corner to the B in PLURIBUS on the scroll.
This lustrous, original piece offers greenish-gold coloration near the rims and reddish-gold in the fields and on the central high points. The die break through UNIT and retained cud are prominent, from a die close to apparent failure. Some light field chatter on the obverse and a single scrape on the reverse above the arrows determine the grade, but there are no other singular marks and no adjustment marks. A beautiful example overall, given its relatively pristine condition and two-toned coloration.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25P2, PCGS# 8085)
