Description:
1810 Small Date, Tall 5 Five Dollar
Frosted MS64 Example of BD-1
1810 $5 Small Date, Tall 5 MS64 NGC. BD-1, High R.3. Bass-Dannreuther Die State c/c. Numismatists who specialize in early U.S. gold probably realize it, but others may not -- the Small/Large Date and Small/Large/Tall 5 half eagles dated 1810 do not form a neat, nifty little 2x2 matrix, hence the Tall 5 appellation as the odd man out. In reality, BD-1 1810 Small Date, Tall 5 is a die pairing that is unique to 1810, although the reverse would be reused in 1811. The BD-2 half eagles of 1810 combine a different Small Date obverse with a Small 5 reverse, and the BD-3 and BD-4, respectively, combine a third 1810 obverse of the Large Date style with Small 5 and Large 5 reverses. (In other words, in BD shorthand, these four die pairings are 1-A, 2-B, 3-B, and 3-C for BD-1 through BD-4.)
This frosty orange-gold near-Gem shows few overt marks on either side. A thin scrape runs under Liberty's eye to her cap, and a small copper spot appears at star 6. Planchet adjustment marks are confined to the reverse rim and scarcely visible within the shield, none on the obverse. The Tall 5 variety is easily recognized by the three shortened dentils beneath the number, where the punch actually struck the dentils, as John Dannreuther points out. The reverse die was reusable for 1811, even in spite of the cracks and die lumps that had formed. A beautiful example of this interesting and unusual variety.(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25PE, PCGS# 8106)
