1807 -  O.108, T-1 R.4- PCGS AU 50

A marvelous, original draped bust half-dollar.  Caky, antique grey toning sparkles with underlying luster.  The surfaces are virtually free of contact marks.  Tompkins determined this die pair to be the first in the 1807 emission order.  Note the crisp, well defined dentils.  The workhorse reverse die was first used in 1806, on the 1806 O.121 and 117.  It was later married to obverse dies of the 1807 O.109 and 110.  A connoisseur’s coin for the date or type collector.  A private treaty acquisition in April 2020 from Eye Appealing Coins at $4,600.  Estimate: $3,000 to $4,000
