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)
