Description

Well Struck 1811 Small 5 Half Eagle, MS62

1811 $5 Small 5 MS62 NGC. Breen-6464, BD-2, R.3. Both varieties for the year (Tall 5 and Small 5 reverses) share an obverse die; the small 5 with the feather tip over the flag of the 5 in the closely spaced denomination is diagnostic for this reverse. John Dannreuther and Harry Bass, Jr., in their Early U.S. Gold Coin Varieties, estimate 225 to 300 examples of the variety extant. They also note that neither of the two 1811 varieties is scarce, within the context of the series, and both appear with frequency at auction. This should not be construed, however, that the Capped Bust Left half eagle is common, especially in Mint State.
Our MS62 offering here exhibits sharply struck design elements. The yellow-gold surfaces display hints of green and orange, and the luster is intense, but the flow is disrupted in a few places. A few grade-consistent marks are scattered over each side.
From The Parker Lee III Collection.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# BFXS, PCGS# 8109)
