    1811 Half Eagle, AU53
    Lustrous Tall 5, BD-1 Example

    1811 $5 Tall 5, BD-1, High R.3, AU53 PCGS. Bass-Dannreuther Die State b/d. This frosted and partially lustrous half eagle is sharply defined despite light wear on the curls below Liberty's cap. Attractive greenish-gold color flows evenly across both sides. The 1811 mintage of 99,581 pieces was split between two varieties. The Tall 5, wide denomination die marriage (BD-1) is slightly scarcer than the Small 5 variety (BD-2), yet they are valued about the same in all grades. The present Tall 5 example is particularly well-preserved for the AU53 grade level. Marks are minimal. Population (Tall 5 variety): 4 in 53, 62 finer (12/17).
    From The Bayside Collection. Consignor's Note: No coins in The Bayside Collection were submitted to NGC or PCGS for regrading or crossover since the coins were originally purchased by the consignor.
