    1806 Half Dollar in White Metal
    J-A1806-1, MS63

    1806 DT50C Half Dollar, Private Restrike, J-A1806-1, R.7, Overton Obverse 11, MS63 PCGS. This Judd Appendix A piece is a privately made die trial, produced outside the Mint. It was struck in white metal on an oversized planchet with a plain edge and a blank reverse. Overton's 1806 Obverse 11 was used to strike two Pointed 6 half dollar varieties, O-123 and 124. It is distinguished by the tops of the 1 and 6 in the date attached to the curl and bust. USPatterns.com states "About a half dozen are known." Of the pieces known, a few are combined with a reverse that was impressed by an embossing die for a 12-cent stamp that features a portrait of Henry Clay. The central design is reasonably well-centered and retains much of the original brightness of the white metal composition.
