    1813 Half Eagle, BD-1, MS62
    Frosty, Original Surfaces
    CAC-Approved

    1813 $5 BD-1, R.2, MS62 PCGS. CAC. Bass-Dannreuther Die State a/a. The 1813 half eagle is by far the most heavily collected issue in the 1813 to 1829 Capped Bust type, if only because it is the only date therein that is readily collectible. It therefore serves as an ideal type candidate. Examples of this issue, particularly the more available BD-1 variety (here represented), are encountered with mild frequency and can be had for a price. Yet, most examples have one distinct fault: surface impairments. A collector may look at dozens of 1813 half eagles before coming across an example in any grade that showcases unequivocally original luster and pleasing eye appeal. This Mint State coin combines these rare qualities with bold design definition and remarkably few abrasions for the grade. The frosty surfaces are aglow in lovely green-gold luster, and the luminous appearance is eye-catching. This piece embodies the combination of technical and aesthetic merit that many early gold collectors hope to find, but seldom do. (NGC ID# 25PM, Variety PCGS# 519907, Base PCGS# 8116)
