1806 USA $5 Capped Bust Pointed 6, 8x5 Stars BD-4 PCGS MS63+

$40,020.00 USD

 Ex: Harry W. Bass, Jr. Collection. Bass-Dannreuther Die State a. The 1806 BD-4 variety can be quickly identified by the placement of star 1 away from Liberty's lowest curl and the Pointed 6 in the date. While the 1806 five dollar claims a total mintage of 64,093 coins, John Dannreuther proposes that only 2,000 to 3,000 of them were struck from this die pair. About 30 to 35 examples are believed extant. To be sure, the Bass coin must rank near the top of the Condition Census. Each side of this Plus-graded Select Uncirculated half eagle retains immense frosty luster over light yellow-gold gorgeous surfaces. Central softness is noted on both the obverse and the reverse, with the latter showing faint adjustment marks over the shield and along the right border. Ex: ANA Sale (Superior Galleries, 8/1975), lot 1504. From The Harry W. Bass, Jr. Core Collection, Part II. Very Rare
