    Description

    1811 BD-2 Half Eagle, AU58
    Partly Lustrous, Small 5

    1811 $5 Small 5, BD-2, R.3, AU58 NGC. Bass-Dannreuther Die State d/a, without clash marks on reverse. Both varieties of the 1811 half eagle are relatively accessible, with this Small 5 type being marginally more available than its Tall 5 counterpart. About 225 to 300 pieces are known. Yellow-gold surfaces showcase remaining mint luster around the peripheral elements and strong central detail, though the strike has failed to obliterate roller marks at the upper reverse. A couple of reddish-violet alloy spots appear on that side. (NGC ID# BFXR, Variety PCGS# 507599, Base PCGS# 8109)

    Weight: 8.75 grams

    Metal: 91.67% Gold, 8.33% Copper
