Description:
Near-Mint 1802/1 Half Eagle
Rare BD-7 Die Pair
1802/1 $5 AU58 NGC. Breen-6440, BD-7, R.5. Two different overdate obverse dies were used for the 1802 half eagles, each die earlier readied for a nonexistent 1801 half eagle coinage. The 2 joins the bust on this obverse and is separated from the bust on the other die. The reverse die for BD-7 has defective Ts in the legend, each missing the right base. Delicate clash marks are visible on the obverse of this near-Mint example.
Both sides have satin luster with yellow-gold surfaces and overtones of green and orange. Numerous tiny surface marks are visible but trivial. This pleasing piece, while still a rare die pairing, represents an available one within the series context, ideal for a date or type collection.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25NX, PCGS# 8083)

What I most appreciated was how thorough you were when we initially met, how you were conservative in your estimates, not trying to get me to consign by giving false expectations, and then for delivering above and beyond on your commitment to me of a wonderful marketing campaign and a first rate catalog and photos, all of which resulted in a final total price realized that was nicely higher than what you had told me to expect.
