    Description

    1803/2 Half Dollar, MS64
    BD-4, Lustrous and Full Struck
    Condition Census Example

    1803/2 $5 BD-4, R.4, MS64 NGC. CAC. Bass-Dannreuther Die State b/c, with a crack through the base of the date. BD-4 is one of four varieties for the year, but it is the only one with a full right foot on the T in LIBERTY. John Dannreuther suggests a surviving population of 125 to 175 pieces from an estimated mintage of 6,000 to 9,000 coins. This near-Gem almost certainly qualifies for the Condition Census not just for the BD-4 die pair, but for for all 1803/2 half eagles. Luminous luster glistens from orange-gold surfaces. Perhaps most impressive is the full strike on each side.
    Census (all varieties): 14 in 64 (4 in 64+, 1 in 64 ), 3 finer. CAC: 6 in 64, 2 finer (11/19).
    From The Kodiak Collection. (NGC ID# 25NY, Variety PCGS# 504951, Base PCGS# 8084)

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
