    1802/1 Half Eagle, AU53
    Centered Overdate
    Rare BD-4 Die Pair

    1802/1 $5 BD-4, R.7, AU53 PCGS. Bass-Dannreuther Die State c/b. This rare die pair has the underdigit 1 centered beneath 2 and the eagle's claw distant from U in UNITED. The leaf tip points between R and I in AMERICA. The coin is struck from a late, near-terminal die state with multiple reverse die cracks including a late-appearing one along the right shield edge, past field star 11. This is a sharply defined example, with areas of reddish-violet toning at the left obverse field and above LIB of LIBERTY. A similar serpentine band of toning travels from N in UNITED through the eagle's head to cloud 4. Perhaps as few as 10 to 12 pieces are known. Heritage has seen just two examples in recent years (NGC ID# 25NX, Variety PCGS# 45599, Base PCGS# 8083)

    Weight: 8.75 grams

    Metal: 91.67% Gold, 8.33% Copper
