    Amazing 1807 Bust Left Five Dollar
    Breen-6453, BD-8, MS64

    1807 $5 Bust Left MS64 NGC. Breen-6453, BD-8, R.2. Bass-Dannreuther Die State c/a, with the obverse lapped from its last BD-7 appearance and the reverse still fresh. The BD-8 is the more available of two first-year Capped Bust Left half eagle die pairs, as the BD-7 is rare regardless of grade. Bass and Dannreuther describes the BD-8 as "among the most available of all varieties of early gold coins," so it comes as little surprise that it is popular with today's type collectors.
    This is a magnificent near-Gem example, lustrous green-gold with scattered orange overtones. Well-defined devices show only a handful of post-striking abrasions. The lower left obverse shows adjustment marks, and a small planchet void is noted between the right wingtip and the first A in AMERICA.(Registry values: P2)
