    Conditionally Scarce 1799 Half Eagle, MS61

    1799 $5 Small Stars Reverse MS61 NGC. Breen-6435, BD-6, R.5. This die marriage is confirmed by the second 9 in the date being recut on lower right; the upright of E in STATES to the right of a cloud space; and the attenuation of several upper left reverse star points by die lapping. A short, thick die crack extends from the upper left reverse rim through the lower left side of A in STATES. The bright reddish-gold surfaces display flashy fields and are lightly abraded on both sides. Crisp definition is noted on the design elements, even if the eagle's breast feathers are typically flat. A conditionally scarce early half eagle from an original mintage of 7,451 pieces. Census: 8 in 61, 14 finer (11/07). (Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25NT, PCGS# 8081)

    Weight: 8.75 grams

    Metal: 91.67% Gold, 8.33% Copper
