    Appealing MS62 1810 Half Eagle
    Small Date, Tall 5, BD-1

    1810 $5 Small Date, Tall 5 MS62 PCGS. Breen-6462, BD-1, High R.3. Bass-Dannreuther Die State c/c, distinguished by rust lumps on both sides. Bass and Dannreuther note in their Early U.S. Gold Coin Varieties that "This variety seems to have been struck on at least two occasions, as the dies are both found without and with rust lumps." They conclude that improper storage came between the two runs, resulting in the rust on the dies.
    This bright MS62 example has pale yellow-gold surfaces and strong detail. Abrasions are minimal for the grade assigned, and the eye appeal is considerable. A great representative of this scarce die pair, which has its own Guide Book listing. Population: 17 in 62, 13 finer (6/09).(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# BFXM, PCGS# 8106)

    Weight: 8.75 grams

    Metal: 91.67% Gold, 8.33% Copper
