Description

Glorious 1804 'Small 8' Half Eagle, BD-1, Lustrous MS63

1804 $5 Small 8 MS63 NGC. Breen-6443, BD-1, High R.4. The 1 in the date has a blunt top, and the 8 is normal (formerly called the Small 8, but Bass and Dannreuther say it is the correct size). The 4 is small. There is a die crack from the rim through the 0, running upward into the portrait. On the reverse a straight graver's line appears, connecting the left (facing) shield point with the B in the motto, through star 12, and to the upper beak. TE are apart, with the right side of the upright of E above the break between two clouds.
Glorious, rich orange-gold coloration appears on both sides of this lustrous coin. A few light adjustment marks are noted near the bust tip on the obverse, well-hidden in the highest hair curl wrapping around the turban, and at the top of the turban to the left of L in LIBERTY. Minor ticks in the obverse fields are consistent with the Select grade, but the reverse is high-end and pleasing for the grade. A lovely coin!(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25P2, PCGS# 8085)
