    BD-1 1806 Half Eagle, 8x5 Stars
    All Proceeds to Smithsonian

    1806 $5 Pointed Top 6, 8x5 Stars Genuine PCGS. BD-1, R.4. The PCGS number ending in .92 suggests Cleaning as the reason, or perhaps one of the reasons, that PCGS deemed this coin not gradable. In our opinion, the piece has the details of an AU coin that has tooling in the fields and has been cleaned. Perhaps the cleaning to the lemon-yellow fields was meant to disguise the light tooling there. Prominent adjustment marks through the portrait do not affect the technical grade.
    Seller is donating 100% of their proceeds, and Heritage is donating 100% of the Buyer's Premium, from the sale of this lot to the National Numismatic Collection at the Smithsonian Institution. See page 3 for details.(Registry values: P3, N3) (NGC ID# 25P7, PCGS# 8090)
