    1810 BD-4 Half Eagle, MS64
    Large Date, Large 5, Middle Die State

    1810 $5 Large Date, Large 5, BD-4, R.2, MS64 PCGS. Bass-Dannreuther Die State b/b. The 1810 BD-4 variety is not only the most-available die marriage for the date, it is among the most frequently seen varieties of all early half eagles. Type collectors and date specialists alike prefer the variety for its availability across most grades. Struck from the second use of its obverse die and the sole use of its reverse, the BD-4 displays large numerals in the date and a large, squat 5 in the denomination.

    This Choice Uncirculated example displays thick, frosted luster over sharply struck lemon-gold surfaces. The coin is struck with clashed dies, easily visible on both sides and especially prominent on the obverse above the back of Liberty's cap. Marks are relatively few for the assigned grade. We note some parallel die striations on Liberty's cheek, which were not fully eliminated even with a sharp strike. Original mint luster gives this near-Gem five dollar exceptional eye appeal. Population (Large Date, Large 5 variety): 38 in 64 (1 in 64+), 4 finer (10/19).
