    1795 Small Eagle Five, BD-4, VF30

    1795 $5 Small Eagle, BD-4, R.5, VF30 PCGS. Bass-Dannreuther Die State d/a. The BD-4 is among four 1795 Small Eagle varieties that share the same obverse, showing the flag of the 5 barely touching the lowest drapery fold. Star 1 is below and touches the curl; star 11 lies over the Y and touches star 12. The reverse shows the small wreath having only three berries, the only such reverse. The present piece is canary-yellow in the centers with attractive orange accents around the rims and peripheral devices. This coin circulated extensively, but it retains a good deal of eye appeal and shows few distractions other than extensive field chatter and scattered small marks. The strike is weak at the dentils on about one-fourth of each side. Certified in an early PCGS small-size holder.
    From The Twelve Oaks Collection.
