    1795 Half Eagle, AU Sharpness
    Small Eagle, Scarce BD-4 Variety

    1795 $5 Small Eagle, BD-4, R.5 -- Cleaned -- NGC Details. AU. Bass-Dannreuther Die State d/a with a radial die crack through star 12 and a clash mark on the back of Liberty's neck. BD-4 is substantially scarcer than BD-3, the most available 1795 variety. The reverse die is unique to BD-4, and shows a wreath termination below the O in OF. 1795 was the first year of gold production at the fledgling Philadelphia Mint, and the Small Eagle type was only coined through 1798. Although the present piece is faintly hairlined from an old cleaning, the presence of partial mint luster and the absence of noteworthy abrasions combine to confirm substantial eye appeal.
