Description:
Important Near-Gem 1802/1 Half Eagle
1802/1 $5 MS64 NGC. B. 2-H and I, Miller-54, R.4. The 1802/1, along with the 1800, is the most frequently encountered Capped Bust half eagle in grades up to and including MS63. At the MS64 level it is a significant condition rarity with only a couple of dozen pieces (at most) known, and it is virtually unobtainable as a Gem. This variety is identifiable by the long spine on the reverse that runs from a leaf into the R in AMERICA. Struck from an intermediate-late die state as evidenced by the lack of die clashing, the regrinding and strengthening of the reverse die, and one (but not two) die cracks through (UNIT)ED on the reverse. As such, this piece is from the same die state as the MS63 coin we offered in our 2003 FUN Sale. This is an especially pleasing coin that shows crisp striking definition in virtually all areas, most notably on the hair curls of Liberty and the eagle's breast feathers. The bright, lustrous surfaces are accented by rich reddish patina around the margins with the usual green-gold coloration elsewhere. Population: 14 in 64, 1 finer (6/05).
