Description:
Smooth Choice 1806 Five Dollar
7x6 Stars, Round Top 6, BD-6
1806 $5 Round Top 6, 7x6 Stars MS64 NGC. Breen-6448, BD-6, R.2. BD-6 is the only die variety of the date with six stars after LIBERTY instead of the expected five stars. As a result, the right obverse border is crowded, while the left border has a relatively large open area near Liberty's shoulder, where star 1 is usually found. The obverse die state is Bass-Dannreuther d, and the reverse state is either e or f. It is impossible to differentiate further between them since the BD reference only states "reclashed" for both e and f. Regardless of die state, the present half eagle is an important example. The sun-gold surfaces display billowy luster and only inconsequential marks. Sharply struck except on the junction of the left (facing) wing. Census: 17 in 64, 1 finer (5/11).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25P5, PCGS# 8089)
