    High-End MS62 1814/3 Five Dollar, BD-1
    Prominently Clashed Late Die States

    1814/3 $5 MS62 PCGS. CAC. Breen-6468, BD-1, High R.4. Bass-Dannreuther Obverse State c / Reverse State d. The 1814/3 is one of those interesting coins where only an overdate variety exists for the year; that is, there are no perfect-date 1814 half eagles known. The reverse was used first for the BD-2 of 1813 and used afterward for the extremely rare 1815 half eagles, making the 1814/3 "as close as most collectors will ever get" to owning an 1815 half eagle.
    This piece is interesting in that it is a quite late state of the dies on each side, with obvious die clashing. The obverse shows the prominent "ear bars" attribute that most specimens show, from the shield lines on the reverse, as well as extensive clashing above the date from the scroll on the reverse. Numerous clash marks also appear on the reverse, from the obverse design details. This piece is also markedly free of planchet adjustment marks, singular contact marks, or other considerations, with generous luster prevailing over medium orange-gold surfaces that are well-struck to boot. Population: 10 in 62, 12 finer (7/11).
