    Significant MS62 1798 Half Eagle
    Heraldic Eagle, Large 8, 13 Reverse Stars, BD-4

    1798 $5 Large Eagle, Large 8, 13 Star Reverse MS62 NGC. Breen-6248, BD-4, High R.4. Bass-Dannreuther Die State d/e. Attribution can be made by the advanced die state alone, with the cuds at 12 and 1 o'clock on the reverse particularly prominent. Eight die marriages are known for the 1798 half eagle, but all are rare, and two varieties (BD-7 and the Small Eagle BD-1) are extremely rare. BD-4 may be the most available marriage, yet Dannreuther estimates that only 80 to 100 examples are known. Among those, few would grade as high as MS62. This is an attractive yellow-gold representative that lacks any memorable marks. The strike is good, with only slight softness of impression at the centers. A desirable example of this challenging date and type.(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# BFX6, PCGS# 8078)
