    XF Details BD-4 1795 Small Eagle Five

    1795 $5 Small Eagle--Removed From Jewelry--NCS. XF Details. Small Eagle, Breen-6412, BD-4, R.5. Significantly scarcer than the usually seen Small Eagle variety, BD-3. Both dies share the same obverse, but the reverse for BD-4 is distinctive, with the wreath ends centered beneath the O in OF. The present piece is glossy and exhibits distributed minute marks from its long-ago stint as jewelry, which perhaps allowed the coin to escape the smelter during the first half of the 19th century. Nonetheless, any Small Eagle five dollar piece is subject to enormous demand as a rare early gold type, particularly if it retains substantial luster within the wings and hair.
