Capped Bust Left Half Eagle


1812 Capped Bust Left Half Eagle. BD-1. Wide 5D. Rarity-3. AU Details--Reverse Damage (NGC).
Vivid yellow-honey toning with luster remaining around the peripheries and devices, particularly on the reverse. An all around nice coin despite the NGC qualifier, which concerns a series of shallow scrapes in the upper reverse field. This is a well struck example with sharp detail throughout the motifs. The half eagles of 1812 were struck in smaller numbers, about 58,000 coins. The BD-1 variety is thought to have accounted for the majority of examples produced, exhibiting the widely spaced denomination on the reverse.
PCGS# 8112. NGC ID: 25PL.
