    Description

    1803/2 Half Eagle, BD-1, AU55
    Sharp and Lustrous

    1803/2 $5 BD-1, R.4, AU55 PCGS. Bass-Dannreuther Die State b/c. Four die varieties of 1803-dated half eagles are known, and all are 1803/2 overdates. BD-1, -2, and -3 share a common obverse, while BD-4 employs a new head die. Based on past Heritage auction appearances, BD-4 appears to be the most available variety, with BD-3 close behind. This partly lustrous BD-1 representative shows light wear on the portrait, but there are no mentionable marks, and the strike is sharp aside from the eagle's left (facing) claw.
    Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 2/2007), lot 4500.
