Description

1809/8 Half Eagle, MS61
Popular Overdate, BD-1

1809/8 $5 MS61 NGC. BD-1, High R.3. All of the 33,875 half eagles dated 1809 are overdates, from a single die pair with the remnants of an 8 peeking out from beneath the 9. The surviving population probably numbers 250-325 examples in all grades. The design elements are well-struck and nicely centered on this attractive Mint State example. Faint adjustment marks are noted along the upper reverse periphery, and across the first S in STATES. The lustrous surfaces display vibrant burnt-orange toning with lime-green highlights on the obverse, and primary lime-green color with burnt-orange peripheral accents on the reverse. Census: 24 in 61, 76 finer (9/13).
Ex: Saint Louis Signature (Heritage, 5/2007), lot 2282.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25PC, PCGS# 8104)
