1810 $5 Large Date, Large 5, BD-4, R.2, XF45 NGC. CAC. Bass-Dannreuther Die State a/a, perfect dies. Eric Newman acquired this piece decades ago for the bargain price of $35.00. A CAC-endorsed Choice XF example, it displays only light high-point wear and deep original patina. The fields have amber, orange, and olive-gold hues. Some minor strike weakness occurs on the eagle's talons and the fletchings although the Liberty portrait is well-defined. With as many as 750 examples of this variety believed known, BD-4 is a popular issue among early gold type and date collectors. The present coin is outstanding in every respect. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
