Description:
1805 BD-1 Half Eagle, MS63+
Excellent Type Candidate
1805 $5 MS63+ NGC. BD-1, High R.3. Bass-Dannreuther Die State b/b. The BD-1 and BD-2 die pairings share a common obverse, with the date narrowly spaced and a perfect 1 that touches the hair curl at its top. The last star pierces the bust. The reverse die on the present BD-1 shows a leaf touching the I in AMERICA, IT in UNITED closely spaced, and the first A in AMERICA touching feathers 3 and 4. In the die state of this piece, a near-vertical die crack runs from the lower obverse rim through the 0 in the date and upward into the bust, although it does not yet join the B above the cap. On the reverse, a die crack joins the tops of NIT, but the massive cud that forms in state c is still well into the future. Excellent luster and rich orange-gold color make this coin an attractive potential acquisition to represent the popular Capped Bust half eagles with Heraldic Eagle reverse, a short-lived type that lasted only from 1795 until 1807. Shallow vertical adjustment marks are barely noticeable at the top of the reverse.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25P4, PCGS# 8088)
