BD-1, Wide 5D, Final Year of Type. Bass-Dannreuther Die State a/a. This was the final year for the Capped Bust Left design. The series is known for a host of varieties, including overdates, Small and Large dates, Small and Large denominations, Small and Large 5s, and in this case Wide and Narrow 5 D. Uniformity of design elements was still a couple of decades away, and these early Mint products provide collectors with a wider variety of coins to pursue than might at first appear to be the case. In any event, this BD-1 half eagle features wide spacing between the 5 and D. This piece has bright lemon-gold surfaces and is sharply defined. CDN Price Guide...$13,600.
