    Select Small 5 1811 Half Eagle, BD-2

    1811 $5 Small 5 MS63 NGC. Breen-6464, BD-2, R.3. Bass-Dannreuther Die State d/a. Two die marriages are known for the 1811, each separately listed in the Guide Book due to different punches for the 5 in 5D. The Small 5 is slightly more available than its Tall 5 alternative. This is a lovely green-gold example whose sharply struck surfaces lack individually relevant marks, although wispy abrasions are distributed. Luster illuminates design elements. Struck from widely rotated dies. Scarcer in Mint State than suggested by third-party census data, due to numerous resubmissions over the past quarter-century. Census: 30 in 63, 23 finer (5/11).
