    Splendid 1818 BD-2 Half Eagle, AU53

    1818 $5 STATESOF AU53 NGC. Breen-6470, BD-2, R.4. A minor mint engraving blunder. The engraver spaced STAT too widely apart, then realized his error and crowded ESOF to prevent letters from reaching the eagle's right (facing) wingtip. From a later die state with a prominent bisecting vertical die crack from star 6 through the second 8 in the date. This straw-gold example is slightly subdued, but is richly detailed and possesses myriad remnants of its initial luster. Neither side has any mentionable marks. The dies are rotated, as usual for this popular variety.
    Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2010), lot 3929, which realized $9,775.(Registry values: P4)
