Description

1813 Capped Head Left Half Eagle, BD-1, MS63
First Year of the Design Type

1813 $5 MS63 PCGS. Breen-6467, BD-1, R.2. A large mintage of 95,428 Capped Head Left half eagles was accomplished in 1813, the first year of the new design featuring the smaller bust. Two varieties are known for the date, with the present BD-1 variety most often seen. In fact, the 1813, BD-1 is the only readily available date and variety of the entire design type. The first S in STATES is located over the right side of the E in E PLURIBUS on BD-1, which employs the same obverse die as BD-2. An estimated original mintage of 60,000-75,000 pieces of the BD-1 variety was coined, with perhaps 450-650 examples surviving today in all grades.
The present coin radiates excellent mint luster, with no breaks over the high points. The attractive green-gold surfaces show underlying shades of yellow, with just a hint of reddish patina. Well, but not fully struck. A number of insignificant field marks limit the grade. Population: 63 in 63, 55 finer (11/09).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25PM, PCGS# 8116)
