    Description

    1808 Half Eagle, BD-3, AU58
    Close 5D, Normal Date

    1808 $5 Close 5D, BD-3, R.4, AU58 NGC. Bass-Dannreuther Die State a/d. Close 5D. Although scarce, the BD-3 variety is more available than once thought, with perhaps 100 survivors in all grades. The date is centered in the exergue, diagnostic of the non-overdated 1808 fives. This is a bright, greenish-gold example with near-Mint State sharpness and nice mint luster. Abrasions are faint but visible with a glass, as are a few small marks. Frosty eye appeal remains despite the brief circulation.
    From The Twelve Oaks Collection.
