1825/4 Capped Bust $5 Gold Half Eagle - 5 Over 4 - Five Dollars
One major variety is the 1825/4 $5 Gold Capped Bust Half Eagle - known as the ultra-rare BD-2 variety. Only 2 of these coins are known to exist and are easily worth over a half million dollars each. It features an 1825 over 1824 overdate. It is very easy to indentify that the underlying digit is a "4" - unlike the more common BD-1 (1825/4/1 or 1825/1 or "Partial 4" variety in which the digit looks like a "1" or partially effaced "4") Depicted below is an example closeup image of the 1825/4 overdate (source of example image is courtesy of Heritage Auction Galleries):
