    1808/7 BD-2 Half Eagle, AU58
    Conditionally Rare Guide Book Variety

    1808/7 $5 Close Date, BD-2, High R.4, AU58 PCGS. CAC. Bass-Dannreuther Die State a/c, without any obverse die cracks. BD-2 has a Close Date, and 5D is narrowly spaced. Two varieties are known for the 1808/7 Capped Bust Left half eagle, this being the more available of the two with 80 to 100 pieces extant. The overdate itself is visible within the upper loop of the second 8. Examples of BD-1 and BD-2 are rare so well-preserved. PCGS reports five near-Mint grading events and 15 representatives finer, almost certainly including a number of resubmissions. CAC has stickered two AU58 coins and four finer pieces (10/16).

    This lovely five dollar gold coin offers soft, shimmering luster that melds with hues of green and wheat-gold. A nearly full strike and clean, minimally abraded surfaces are additional attributes. Grade-limiting friction is, for all intents and purposes, imperceptible. A tiny planchet void near star 4 will identify this coin in future appearances.
    From The Hutchinson Collection. (NGC ID# 25PB, Variety PCGS# 45637, Base PCGS# 8103)
