Description:
1808 Capped Bust Left Half Eagle, MS62
Wide 5D Variety, BD-4
1808 $5 MS62 NGC. Wide 5D, Breen-6457, BD-4, High R.3. The large mintage of 55,578 half eagles in 1808 was divided among four different die varieties. The BD-4 die marriage, called the Wide 5 D because of the diagnostic large separation of the 5 and the D in the denomination, is the one most often encountered. The reverse die for this issue was particularly hardy, as it was used to strike the 1809/8 variety during the following year. Examples in MS62 condition are quite scarce today.
The present coin is sharply struck, with all star centers complete and fine detail present on Liberty's hair and the eagle's feathers. The pleasing surfaces display light, greenish-gold patina over much original mint luster. No important distractions are noted, just the usual minor handling marks on both sides. Census: 37 in 62, 44 finer (6/10).
From The Caleb Louis Collection of U.S. Gold Type.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25PA, PCGS# 8102)
