    Rare Gem Uncirculated 1806 Round Top 6, 7x6 Stars Half Eagle

    1806 $5 Round Top 6, 7x6 Stars MS65 NGC. Breen-6448, B. 5-E, Miller-84, R.3. There are six die marriages of 1806-dated Half Eagles, but Breen 5-E is differentiated from the other varieties in two important ways. The 6 in the date ends with a knob instead of a point, and the stars are arranged seven left and six right instead of the usual eight by five arrangement. This wonderfully preserved example is boldly struck overall with some localized softness noted on the left peripheral stars and at the juncture of the left (facing) wing and shield. The obverse was produced from heavily striated dies while a more smooth, satiny texture prevails on the reverse. Adjustment marks on the left side of the eagle's shield contribute to the softness in this area. Although not particularly scarce by early gold standards in Uncirculated grades, this is the first Gem example we have ever offered and one of just two certified by both major services combined (12/04). (#8089) (Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# BFXJ, PCGS# 8089)
