Description:
Marvelous 1806 BD-6 Round Top 6 Half Eagle, MS64
1806 $5 Round Top 6, 7x6 Stars MS64 NGC. Breen-6448, BD-6, R.2. The Round Top 6 variety is a distinctive type issue, with the obverse stars arranged seven left and six right. All previous issues, including the 1806 Pointed 6 coins, have eight stars to the left and five to the right. The new 7x6 star arrangement remained in effect until the coinage design was discontinued in 1807. Type collectors will be interested in this near-Gem, whether they are seeking examples of both star arrangements, or just a single piece to represent the Draped Bust type. The 1806 Knobbed 6 or Round Top 6 half eagle is the most plentiful early five dollar piece, regardless of type, date, or grade. With many pieces to choose from, collectors will be paid dividends by waiting for exactly the right coin, cherrypicking for quality.
This amazing piece has frosty green-gold luster on both sides, encircled by rich and brilliant orange-gold toning near the peripheries. Technically, gold does not tone, and the bright orange color seen on each side is a result of the copper alloy. The pristine surfaces have an incredible cartwheel appearance, with nothing more than trivial marks on each side. The strike is sharp, even at the centers, with the exception of weakness at the junction of the left (facing) wing and the shield. The connoisseur will appreciate the exceptional technical quality as well as the remarkable beauty of this half eagle. Census: 45 in 64, 2 finer (3/09).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25P5, PCGS# 8089)
