Description

Vibrant 1808 Wide 5D Half Eagle, BD-4, MS61

1808 $5 MS61 PCGS. Wide 5D, Breen-6457, BD-4, High R.3.
The BD-4 is one of the two nonoverdate die marriages known for the 1808 half eagles, the other being the BD-3. The two pairings share the same obverse die, which shows the date centered between the bust and the dentils. (Both overdates have the date lower toward the rim.) The reverse of the BD-4 is a fresh die, while the reverse of the BD-3 is a carryover from 1807. The denomination is widely spaced, and the A in STATES is centered over the U of PLURIBUS.
This is a lovely, lustrous greenish-gold piece with lots of vibrancy and more eye appeal than the grade might suggest. Bold die clashing appears on each side, especially the reverse. A bit of struck-in die grease crosses Liberty's nose. Contact is relatively minor and scattered. Certified in a green-label holder. Population: 15 in 61, 54 finer (6/10).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 4U57, PCGS# 8102)
