    Guide Book Variety, BD-6

    1806 $5 Round Top 6, 7x6 Stars AU55 PCGS. BD-6, R.2. Bass-Dannreuther Die State d/e. The 1806 half eagle claims a substantial mintage of 64,093 pieces, with six die varieties known for the date. The present coin represents the popular BD-6 variety, the only one with a Round Top 6 in the date. Listed on page 255 of the 2014 Guide Book, the BD-6 is an available issue with a surviving population of 600-900 examples in all grades.

    The coin offered here is an attractive Choice AU specimen from a late state of the dies with well-detailed design elements and a few die cracks and clash marks on both sides. The pleasing orange-gold surfaces retain traces of original mint luster and show a few minor abrasions, but no planchet adjustment marks. This coin will be a welcome addition to a fine collection or type set.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# BFXJ, PCGS# 8089)
