    Delightful 1808 Close 5D Half Eagle, BD-3, MS63

    1808 $5 MS63 NGC. Close 5D, Breen-6456, BD-3, R.4. Called "Normal 5D" in Bass-Dannreuther, as opposed to "Wide 5D." The date is centered between the dentils and the bust, and the reverse has 5D normally spaced, with the A of STATES centered over LU in PLURIBUS. The final 08 is a bit closer than 180, and the upright of 1 is over a space between denticles. There is a tiny centering dot on the cheek of Liberty.
    This example shows lovely, distraction-free green-gold surfaces with good luster and a bold strike. A few wispy contact marks account for the grade, but there are no singular abrasions, and there is much eye appeal commending this delightful coin. NGC Census for the date: 31 in 63, 12 finer (3/08).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 4U57, PCGS# 8102)

    Weight: 8.75 grams

    Metal: 91.67% Gold, 8.33% Copper

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
