Description

    Near-Gem 1812 Half Eagle, Wide 5D Variety

    1812 $5 MS64 NGC. B. 1-B, Miller-118, R.3. Wide 5-D. The obverse is well struck, while the reverse has only the slightest weakness of strike on the eagle's plumage. A pinscratch is carefully concealed within the shield, but the surfaces are otherwise pleasing and have luminous bright luster. The final star has a notch on the lower outside corner, which is generally acknowledged as a signature of engraver John Reich. Reich also designed both sides of this scarce type, with the eagle motif undergoing only minor changes for nearly the next century. (NGC ID# 42AM, PCGS# 8112)
