    Vibrant 1808 Wide 5D Half Eagle, BD-4, MS61

    1808 $5 MS61 PCGS. Wide 5D, Breen-6457, BD-4, High R.3.
    The BD-4 is one of the two nonoverdate die marriages known for the 1808 half eagles, the other being the BD-3. The two pairings share the same obverse die, which shows the date centered between the bust and the dentils. (Both overdates have the date lower toward the rim.) The reverse of the BD-4 is a fresh die, while the reverse of the BD-3 is a carryover from 1807. The denomination is widely spaced, and the A in STATES is centered over the U of PLURIBUS.
    This is a lovely, lustrous greenish-gold piece with lots of vibrancy and more eye appeal than the grade might suggest. Bold die clashing appears on each side, especially the reverse. A bit of struck-in die grease crosses Liberty's nose. Contact is relatively minor and scattered. Certified in a green-label holder. Population: 15 in 61, 54 finer (6/10).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 4U57, PCGS# 8102)

    Weight: 8.75 grams

    Metal: 91.67% Gold, 8.33% Copper

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
