Description:
1808 Half Eagle, MS62
Popular BD-4, Wide 5D
1808 $5 MS62 PCGS. CAC. Wide 5D, Breen-6457, BD-4, High R.3. Bass-Dannreuther Die State c/a, the only die state known for the variety. The widely separated 5D in the denomination indicates this coin is an example of the BD-4 variety. The BD-4 is the variety most often seen, with a surviving population of about 175-225 examples in all grades. The present coin is a delightful MS62 specimen, sharply detailed in most areas, with just a little softness on the eagle's talons. The light yellow-gold surfaces are lustrous and minimally abraded. Eye appeal is extraordinary for such an early issue. Population: 25 in 62, 31 finer (7/11).
