Significant 1808 Capped Bust Half Eagle MS621808 $5 MS62 PCGS. Wide 5D, Breen-6457, B. 4-B, Miller-107, R.4. Sharply detailed in virtually all areas, with rich yellow-gold coloration and bright, unimpeded satiny luster. There are no readily apparent abrasions, just minor scuffiness in the fields and a couple of shallow disturbances below the eagle on the reverse. The Normal Date varieties are from a single obverse die with the reverse dies differentiated by a single glance at I of PLURIBUS in relation to E of STATES or the spacing between 5 and D of the denomination. As a date, 1808 half eagles (less than a quarter of which are overdates) are not especially difficult when compared to other issues in the Capped Bust Left series, but in strict Mint State fewer than 100 pieces are believed to be extant. Population: 19 in 62, 20 finer (3/06).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25PA, PCGS# 8102)
