Tangible Investments is offering an 1810 $5 Half Eagle Large Date, Large 5, BD-4, R.2, in PCGS MS65. The BD-4 die state is much more available in 64 and below although it becomes difficult after that with only 2 in 64+. This example is one of 4 in 65.
The certification Number for the 1810 $5 Half Eagle Large Date, Large 5 we are offering is 8108.65/40745717 and can be verified at PCGS Cert Verification.
The 1810 $5 Half Eagle Bass-Dannreuther Die State BD-4 can be identified by the nearly horizontal top of the one in the date and the Large 5 on the reverse with the feathers tip pointing directly towards the tip of the 5.
Definitely worthy of its Gem grade. This is an original example along with beautiful color and frosty luster. There are a few adjustment marks on the reverse around the ribbon and US of PLURIBUS. Just enough to note is a bit of strike softness on the eagle’s right claw or the left when looking at the coin. It is minimal and not exactly distracting
This coin overall is one of the finest examples of this U.S. type coin and even more so within the BD-4 Die state.
PCGS variety number is 507598 and the base number is 8108.

John W. Dannreuther was a numismatic scholar who wrote a book on gold coin die state varieties with Harry W. Bass Jr. and foreword by Q. David Bowers. Together Dannreuther and Bass expanded on the work of Bass. The book is titled Early U.S. Gold Coin Varieties: A Study of Die States, 1795-1834. It usually can be found online. There is a copy on Amazon available if you want to learn more about the different varieties.
