Description:
Desirable 1826 BD-1 Half Eagle, AU55
1826 $5 AU55 PCGS. BD-1, High R.5. Although 1826 is more plentiful than most other years in the decade, it is clearly a rare date with less than 50 examples of two die varieties known today. It is unknown why the dies were taken out of service, as neither had any signs of deterioration, even though the reverse die was in use since 1820. The obverse has the appearance of die bulging in the left and right fields. Perhaps that explains why it was removed from the press without other injuries. Apparently two proof examples are known, one in the Smithsonian Institution and the other currently unlocated. In addition to those, five or six Mint State coins have been identified over the years. The present outstanding Choice AU example ranks close to the Condition Census for the variety and the date. It is fully lustrous with rich honey-gold surfaces and traces of orange toning.(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 25R4, PCGS# 8135)
