1806 Pt.6, Stem -  O.118a, T-24 R.3 PCGS AU 53 CAC

The latest state of these dies (T-2/6).  Prominent die breaks and chipping of the reverse die explain internal cuds across cloud 7, under OF.  Despite a terminal die state, the central devices are generally well struck.  Some weakness appears at the lowest part of the eagle’s left wing, extending into the shield.  Luster, toning and eye appeal are first rate!  CAC is notoriously stingy in awarding stickers to flowing hair and draped bust half dollars.  I doubt there was a moment’s hesitation when this lovely coin arrived in Bedminster.  From Heritage’s sale of the Eagle One Collection, June 2016, lot 4503 @ $5,052.
Estimate:  $4,000 to $5,000
