    BD-8 1799 Large Stars Reverse
    Half Eagle, AU50

    1799 $5 Large Stars Reverse AU50 PCGS. Breen-6437, BD-8, R.6. Bass-Dannreuther Die State b/b, with reverse terminal due to numerous die cracks and the obverse nearly so due to a single bold vertical crack down the center. This Large Reverse Stars die pair is considered "very rare" by Bass and Dannreuther, who estimate a surviving population of 22 to 30 pieces across all grades. This is a radiant yellow-gold example surfaces that show little actual wear. Adjustment marks feature prominently on the lower reverse, including on the claw with the arrows, which shows weakness in contrast to the boldness of the stars. The obverse fields show a number of grade-defining old pinscratches, most visibly at the top of that side through the L in LIBERTY.(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 25NT, PCGS# 98081)
