Description:
1808/7 Capped Bust Left Half Eagle, AU58
Scarce BD-2 Variety
1808/7 $5 AU58 PCGS. Close Date, Breen-6455, BD-2, High R.4. A large total of 55,578 half eagles were coined in 1808, with four die varieties known for the date. The present coin is an example of the BD-2 variety, with the second 8 in the date punched over a 7, and a tall 1 centered over the right edge of a dentil. The BD-2 is a scarce variety with an estimated original mintage of 7,500-12,500 pieces, and a surviving population of 80-100 examples.
The present coin is an attractive specimen with strong, even reddish color over both sides. Mint luster is evident in protected areas near the devices. Evidence of porosity is noted at the centers, possibly from an improperly prepared planchet. Sharply struck in most areas, with some slight softness on the central hair curls and eagle's neck. The only noticeable surface marks are a short area of pinscratching to the left of star 12. Population: 5 in 58, 15 finer (11/09).(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25PB, PCGS# 8103)
