    Description

    1802/1 Capped Bust Right Half Eagle
    Popular Overdate, BD-8, Uncirculated Details

    1802/1 $5 --Improperly Cleaned--NGC Details. Unc. Breen-6440, BD-8, R.4. A large mintage of 53,176 half eagles was accomplished in 1802, with eight die varieties known for the date. The present coin is a representative of the BD-8 variety, with the 2 touching the bust and the last S in STATES positioned over the far right of a cloud. The BD-8 variety probably accounts for 10,000 -15,000 pieces of the original mintage, with an estimated 150-200 examples known today. The present coin is an attractive example of this early gold issue, in spite of the cleaning noted on the holder. The devices are sharply struck and the surfaces are lustrous and lightly abraded.
