    1810 Half Eagle, BD-4, MS63
    Remarkably Eye-Appealing Type Coin

    1810 $5 Large Date, Large 5, BD-4, R.2, MS63 PCGS. Bass-Dannreuther Die State a/a. This is one of the few early half eagle varieties that can be considered available; more than 500 examples are believed to survive in all grades, which makes BD-4 an ideal choice for the collector seeking a single type or date representative.

    The present piece is a scarce Mint State example, however, and is a highly attractive piece, as well. The stars and central devices are boldly impressed and the surfaces exhibit remarkably frosty luster in medium green-gold hues. Some minor luster grazes on the cheek seem to be all that preclude an even finer grade on this truly eye-appealing type coin. Population: 59 in 63 (3 in 63+), 39 finer (8/17).
    Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 1/2015), lot 3268. (NGC ID# BFXP, Variety PCGS# 507598, Base PCGS# 8108)

    Weight: 8.75 grams

    Metal: 91.67% Gold, 8.33% Copper
