    1810 Large Date, Large 5 Half Eagle, MS60
    Praiseworthy and Collectible Example, BD-4

    1810 $5 Large Date, Large 5, BD-4, R.2, MS60 NGC. Bass-Dannreuther Die State c/b. The 1810 Large Date, Large 5 half eagle is popular as a type coin and an in-demand issue as one of the most available of early half eagle die varieties. This piece displays generous luster for the grade on mellow amber-gold surfaces with hints of prooflikeness in the fields. Only under a loupe do minor surface disturbances appear, some as made at the Mint -- planchet adjustment marks on the cheek and jawline of Liberty and at the left obverse rim -- and others the result of apparent post-Mint contact, including a small dotlike planchet indent near star 2 and a few miscellaneous scrapes on each side. This is still a coin with plenty of meat on the bone, one that merits collectors' attention.
