    1810 Five Dollar, MS61
    Large Date, Large 5, BD-4

    1810 $5 Large Date, Large 5, BD-4, R.2, MS61 NGC. Bass-Dannreuther Die State a/a without any cracks or clashes. The two extremes of rarity for early gold are represented by the 1810 Large Date five. The variety with a Large 5 reverse, BD-4, is fairly plentiful. The Small 5 reverse, BD-3, is High R.7 with only four to six examples known. Dannreuther suggests the Large 5 should instead be called the Fat, Squat 5 to better distinguish it from the narrow but tall Small 5. Whatever the nomenclature, the present lot is a member of the more collectible Large Date die variety. The sea-green and peach-gold surfaces are free from obvious marks, and the strike is crisp except on the shield. Luster brightens the legends, stars, curls, cap, drapery, and eagle.
