    Description

    Uncirculated Wide 5D 1808 Half Eagle, BD-4

    1808 $5 MS61 NGC. CAC. Wide 5D, Breen-6457, BD-4, High R.3. This well struck Mint State early five dollar piece has peach-red toning throughout the borders, which along with the devices are illuminated by vivacious luster. The few delicate field marks are of no concern. An impressive example of a scarce gold type. BD-4 is the sole Wide 5D variety among the four 1808-dated die pairings, which are further divided into two normal date and two 1808/7 marriages. The overdate is considered rarer, particularly BD-1, whose production run was apparently limited by a prominent bisecting obverse die crack.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 4U57, PCGS# 8102)

    Weight: 8.75 grams

    Metal: 91.67% Gold, 8.33% Copper
