    1810 BD-4 Half Eagle, MS62
    Large Date, Large 5

    1810 $5 Large Date, Large 5 MS62 PCGS Secure. BD-4, R.2. The early or perfect die state, Bass-Dannreuther obverse state a and reverse state a. Two small die lumps between the final S and the O are always present. The Large 5 on the reverse is closed at the bottom left, and close examination reveals some repunching, a feature that has never been described before, to the best of our knowledge.
    Every series has its common coins and less common coins, and the 1810 Large Date, Large 5 half eagle variety is one of the most plentiful among all Capped Bust half eagles struck from 1807 to 1812, and that is good news for type collectors who seek a single high grade representative of the design.
    This example is frosty and fully lustrous with brilliant yellow surfaces showing slight weakness left of the shield. The surfaces exhibit scattered grade-consistent marks.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# BFXP, PCGS# 8108)
