Description

Uncirculated 1807 Capped Bust Left Five, BD-8

1807 $5 Bust Left MS61 NGC. Breen-6453, BD-8, R.2. The Capped Bust design, with the numerals on the obverse quite small and well centered between the bust and the denticles. On the reverse the lowest feather tip in the fletchings points to the corner of the 5's flag.
The obverse was first used with the extremely rare BD-7 die marriage, then reused in this relatively common pairing. Famed gold collector Harry W. Bass Jr. owned four examples of this available variety, one that is nonetheless widely sought for type purposes (especially by those collectors who seek first-year-of-type specimens). This piece is sharply struck, with even, attractive golden-orange coloration visible throughout both sides. A few small abrasions on each side are responsible for the grade, along with some tiny scrapes visible between S and O on the reverse.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25P9, PCGS# 8101)
