    Intriguing 1799 BD-1 Half Eagle, AU58
    Obvious 1798 Clash Marks

    1799 $5 Small Stars Reverse AU58 PCGS. Breen-6433, BD-1, R.5. There are nine different die marriages known for 1799, and each one is from a different reverse die. The BD-1 marriage has a reverse that was earlier used for 1798 BD-8, where it picked up bold clash marks from the 1798-dated obverse, including the complete date behind TES of STATES. Now used with a 1799 obverse, the old clash marks from the 1798 marriage are still visible, including the date! While many reverse dies in all denominations remained in use for two or more years, seldom can the actual clash marks be dated.
    This pleasing piece has mild reflectivity in the fields with pale orange toning over lemon-yellow surfaces. The reverse has a small splash of powder-blue in the shield. An exciting piece from an underrated date. Population: 5 in 58, 20 finer (11/09).(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25NT, PCGS# 8081)
