Certification: 46092671

1808/7 $5 Close Date, BD-2, High R.4, MS64+ PCGS. Ex: Harry W. Bass, Jr. Collection. The obverse is free of clashing or cracks. Traces of an underlying 7 appear below the second 8 in the date, and the digits are closely spaced. The 5 and D in the denomination are also close together. BD-2 is the second scarcest variety for the year, made all the more popular by the clear overdate. It is estimated that only 80 to 100 representatives exist in all grades. Radiant mint frost washes over each side of this marvelous near-gem. The coin is strongly struck from the centers out, including the stars, curls, feathers, and shield. PCGS has rightfully awarded a Plus designation for quality within the grade. Indeed, marks are scant. PCGS Population is 2 in this grade with only a single coin higher in MS65 where the price jumps to over $100k.
