    Description

    1811 BD-2 Five Dollar, MS61
    Small 5 in Denomination

    1811 $5 Small 5 MS61 NGC. BD-2, R.3. Bass-Dannreuther Die State e/b with prominent clash marks on both sides. Although Capped Bust Left half eagles have a reputation for rarity, a complete date collection of the series (from 1807 to 1812) can be assembled without any stoppers and would make a small but impressive display. On the other hand, a complete Guide Book set of the series is virtually precluded by the rarity of two of the four 1810 half eagle varieties. The present straw-gold 1811 example lacks any consequential abrasions. Luster fills the borders and devices. The strike is good though the high points show slight blending.
    From the collection of Donald E. Bently, sold for the benefit of the Bently Foundation.(Registry values: P2)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25PH, PCGS# 8109)

    Weight: 8.75 grams
