    1813 BD-1 Half Eagle, AU Details
    Rare Early Gold Type

    1813 $5 BD-1, R.2 -- Altered Surfaces -- PCGS Genuine. AU Details. In 1813, the Draped Bust obverse design on the half eagle was replaced by the Capped Head. The reverse eagle was also changed, but the changes were much less dramatic. The most noticeable differences are a symmetrical shield and more widely spaced arrows. The Capped Head series is uncollectible by date, but can be acquired as a type coin, courtesy of the 1813 B-1, which is often selected to represent the design. This wheat-gold example shows minimal evidence of circulation, though the surfaces are somewhat subdued. Marks are few, with a tick on the M in AMERICA mentioned as an identifier.
