1807 Bust Right Five Dollar, BD-4
1807 $5 Bust Right AU55 NGC. CAC. BD-4, High R.4.
Bass-Dannreuther Die State c/a. The BD-3 and BD-4 1807 Draped Bust,
Large Reverse Stars half eagles share the same obverse die paired
with different reverse dies. The 1 in the date does not quite meet
the lowest curl, due to lapping in later states (as here; this was
the second use after the BD-3). Star 8 is distant both from the rim
and the Y. The reverses are similar, but on the BD-4, the last A
touches the eagle's claw, while they are merely close on the BD-3.
The first A in AMERICA touches feather 3 and overlies feather 4.
Recutting is perceptible on the ER. This reverse was later used in
the BD-5 and BD-6 varieties. This Choice AU piece is a nice medium
yellow-gold over surfaces that exhibit much eye appeal. Moderate
strike weakness appears on the eagle's wings flanking the shield;
the obverse shows a few scattered, trivial marks accompanying minor
planchet adjustments visible through the center of Liberty. Nice
for the type.
