1807 -  O.108, T.1 R.3 PCGS AU 58

Bold luster oozes from this remarkable survivor of the early Mint.  A pale ring of russet toning encases the stars and legend.  The strike will be a major selling point.  Few draped bust half-dollars display the detail found on this coin.  Note, esp., Liberty’s lower curls and drapery lines.  The eagle’s wing and breast feathers are equally sharp.  A trace of friction crosses the bust.  I doubt that the coin ever saw circulation.  In all, a magnificent specimen that should draw serious bids from those working on a high-grade date or type set. Est. $5,500 and up.
