1798 Large 8, 13 Star Reverse $5
BD-4, High R.4. Large 8 touches drapery, left foot of A below the end of and near feather 4. Even green-gold color with a brighter yellow-gold appearance at more direct angles. Original luster is discernible in most areas and the fields impart a semi-reflective finish. Some minor weakness is noted at the lower right obverse, the reverse is sharp overall despite the late state of the dies. Obvious mint-made cuds are present at ES of STATES and over the O of OF. All-in-all, a very appealing example for the grade.

The 1798 Large Eagle is the most frequently encountered pre-1800 issue in the half eagle series, and BD-4 is one of the die marriages typically seen among survivors. On the other hand, the 1798 Large Eagle is rarer than the Capped Bust Right fives delivered during the 1800-1807 era. (PCGS 8078) About Uncirculated to Brilliant Uncirculated
