    1825/4/1 Half Eagle, BD-1
    AU Sharpness, Partly Lustrous

    1825/4/1 $5 BD-1, High R.5 -- Surfaces Smoothed -- PCGS Genuine. AU Details. Bass-Dannreuther Die State a/a without clash marks. Since BD-2 and BD-3 are uncollectible, those in search of an 1825-dated half eagle are obligated to select the BD-1. BD-1 is listed in the Guide Book as an 1825 Over Partial 4, while PCGS calls it an 1825/4/1. The variety was formerly known as an 1825/1. The upright of a digit, either a 4 or 1, is obvious within the 5 in the date. Only about 25 to 30 pieces have survived from the reported mintage of 29,060 pieces. The obverse die is shared with BD-3, known only by the Byron Reed specimen, which lacks the prominent center dot of BD-1. The present BD-1 example shows only a hint of wear on the shoulder curl. The straw-gold fields are mildly bright, but acceptable to most collectors of the challenging series.
