Description 1806 $5 Round Top 6, 7x6 Stars AU55 NGC. CAC. BD-6, R.2. Bass-Dannreuther Die State a/b. The die state shows minor clashing in the left reverse field below the clouds and between the stars. Although BD-6 is the most common variety of all Draped Bust Large Eagle coins, this particular example certainly ranks among the finest pieces in terms of its aesthetic merits. Orange-gold interiors progress to amazing shades of golden-brown, violet, and gunmetal-blue patina at the borders. The effect is absolutely mesmerizing and further enhanced by the presence of luminous luster within the recesses. The motifs are well struck with grade-consistent friction over the high points. Roller marks occur diagonally from northwest to southeast over Liberty's portrait, and abrasions are lightly scattered throughout. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $13512.50.
