    1828 Half Eagle, XF Details
    BD-4, Very Rare Date

    1828 $5 BD-4, High R.6 -- Repaired -- PCGS Genuine. XF Details. Bass-Dannreuther Die State a/b. Four die pairs are confirmed for the 1828 half eagle, but three of those marriages are noncollectible. BD-2 is unique, there are three to four known BD-3 half eagles, and three to five known for BD-1. Date collectors are obligated to acquire BD-4, but even that variety is a formidable rarity, with about a baker's dozen survivors. The present example provides a rare opportunity to acquire an affordable specimen. The wheat-gold surfaces show smoothing on the left obverse field, but the devices are nicely defined and the eye appeal is attractive given its impairment. The reverse has a pair of small alloy spots.
