1805 -  O.106, T-13 R.4- PCGS XF 40 CAC


Well struck early die state with handsome, original toning.  Thin, high rims are razor sharp.  Complete dentils, obverse and reverse.  The obverse die is famous: it was overdated and used in 1806 [1806/5 O.104].  No other half-dollar obverse die was used in successive years, a surprise in view of the number of overdates to be found in the series.  As a date, 1805 is far scarcer than its companions from 1806 and 1807.  Here is a wonderful coin for the date collector.  From MB 43, Aug. 2016, lot 3 @ $2,421.   Estimate: $2,000 to $2,500
