Description

Challenging 1808/7 BD-2 Half Eagle, MS61

1808/7 $5 MS61 NGC. Breen-6455, BD-2, High R.4. The upper crossbar of the 7 is obvious within the upper loop of the final 8 in the date. Part of the shaft of the 7 is also visible inside the lower left loop of the 8, and there is no sign of the 7 outside of the 8, unlike with the BD-1 that shares the same reverse die. Those enterprising numismatists who collect by die variety also look for the tiny incuse circle on the obverse center, as made and an artifact of the die's production. There are two die marriages for the 1808/7, but since BD-1 is rare, those who collect by Guide Book variety usually obtain an example of BD-2.
This sun-gold piece is well defined aside from minor strike bluntness on the lower left quadrant of the eagle's neck. A thin mark reaches the middle arrowhead, but the overall appearance is blemish-free. A challenging issue, particularly when compared with its 1807 predecessor. Census: 13 in 61, 12 finer (9/10).(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25PB, PCGS# 8103)
