Description

1800 Capped Bust Right Half Eagle, MS62
Blunt 1, BD-5 Variety

1800 $5 MS62 NGC. Breen-6438, BD-5, High R.3. Ex: Caleb Louis Collection. A generous mintage of 37,628 half eagles was achieved in 1800, with five different die varieties known for the date. The present coin is an example of the slightly scarce BD-5 variety, with a broken flag on the 1 in the date and both feet of the final A in AMERICA touching the eagle's claw. John Dannreuther estimates the original mintage of the BD-5 variety as 7,500-12,500 pieces, with perhaps 175-250 examples extant today.
The surfaces of this attractive specimen exhibit bright mint luster and pleasing greenish-gold color. The striking details are sharp on the central obverse, but a little softness shows on the peripheries. Overall visual appeal is exceptional. Census: 35 in 62, 29 finer (6/10).
From The Caleb Louis Collection of U.S. Gold Type.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25NW, PCGS# 8082)
