    Desirable Mint State 1809/8 Half Eagle

    1809/8 $5 MS62 NGC. B. 1-A, Miller-108, the only known dies, R.3. Third year of the modified design, the 1809 Half Eagles were produced during a period when the Mint was undergoing significant changes in its production processes as well as personnel. Struck from an earlier die state, the underdigit is quite clear within the lower loop of the 9. The striking details are exceptionally strong on each side with pinpoint definition on Liberty's hair curls, the peripheral stars, and the eagle's plumage. The surfaces are sparkling and highly lustrous with an even layer of reddish patina on each side. (#8104) (NGC ID# BFXK, PCGS# 8104)
