BD-2, High R.5. Bright and lustrous yellow-gold with lively olive highlights and somewhat reflective fields. An abrasion under stars 5 and 6 and another at the rim above star 8 are the only blemishes to be seen by the unaided eye. The design motifs are fairly crisp given the amount of circulation, and the overall eye appeal is bold. From a mintage for the date of 3,035 pieces, a low mintage by most standards, but a moderately "large" mintage within the design type. Indeed, the 11 dates and varieties that make up the design type, 1796 to 1807, saw a total mintage of just 19,487 pieces, or an average for each date of just over 1,771 coins. A pleasing specimen that would fit well in an advanced gold type set. (PCGS 7650)
