    1802/1 BD-2 Half Eagle, AU Sharpness
    Flipover Double Struck
    First Strike 25% Off Center

    1802/1 $5 BD-2, High R.4 -- Flipover Double Struck, First Strike 25% Off Center, Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. AU. Flipover double strikes are great rarities on any Federal gold series. Searches of our online auction archives show only a single prior appearance of the error category on a gold coin: an 1856-S gold dollar that sold as lot 5964 in our April 1999 Central States Signature. On the present early half eagle, evidence of the first strike is obvious once studied beneath a lens. All four date digits are faintly apparent near the eagle's head, and the TATE in STATES is readable on Liberty's forehead, cheek, and hair. The first strike was widely off center toward 10:30. The coin was examined, the off-center error was noticed, and the errant piece was returned to the press and properly struck. The green-gold surfaces are unabraded and show only a trace of wear, although patches of hairlines are present on both sides.
