    1810 BD-4 Half Eagle, XF45
    Perfect Die State

    1810 $5 Large Date, Large 5, BD-4, R.2, XF45 NGC. CAC. Bass-Dannreuther Die State a/a, perfect dies. Eric Newman acquired this piece decades ago for the bargain price of $35.00. A CAC-endorsed Choice XF example, it displays only light high-point wear and deep original patina. The fields have amber, orange, and olive-gold hues. Some minor strike weakness occurs on the eagle's talons and the fletchings although the Liberty portrait is well-defined. With as many as 750 examples of this variety believed known, BD-4 is a popular issue among early gold type and date collectors. The present coin is outstanding in every respect.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
