    1807 Capped Bust Left Half Eagle, AU58
    BD-8, Sharply Struck Throughout

    1807 $5 Bust Left AU58 NGC. BD-8, R.2. The 1807 half eagle coinage consisted of six Draped Bust (right) varieties and two Capped Bust (left) varieties. The BD-8 is more plentiful than BD-7 among the John Reich-designed Capped Bust half eagles. A trace of wear appears on the high points of this lemon-yellow example with a copper spot at the front of the cap and a tiny rim bump below the 1 in the date. The strike is quite sharp throughout both sides, and contact marks are inconsequential.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 7HS3, PCGS# 8101)

    Weight: 8.75 grams

    Metal: 91.67% Gold, 8.33% Copper
