1800 Capped Bust Heraldic Half Eagle NGC MS63

1800 Capped Bust Heraldic Half Eagle NGC MS63

The second design of what was to become the workhorse of the U.S. currency. Struck only a short eight years after the establishment of the U.S. mint, with a scant mintage of 37,628.

Keep in mind that this coin was minted 4 years before the “Louisiana Purchase” of 1804.

A choice piece that is sure to provide great “pride of ownership” to its next caretaker.

1800 Capped Bust Heraldic Half Eagle PCGS MS63 (CAC)

1800 Capped Bust Heraldic Half Eagle PCGS MS63 (CAC)

A wonderful example of how a 210 year old coin should look when properly cared for. Never cleaned or abused, it exibits satiny luster underneath its two century old patina. Simply spendid.

Historical Note: President Washington had been dead less than a year, and the Louisiana Purchase was four years away when this piece was minted.

1806 Capped Bust Heraldic Half Eagle Round 6 PCGS MS64 (CAC)

This dazzling piece of history has everything one would want from a coin, history, rarity and superb surfaces. In a time when five dollars was almost a months wage to the average worker, this glorious coin was set aside for us to marvel at. Robert Scot designed this remarkable coin with Ms. Liberty donning a large cap and surrounded by 13 stars on the obverse. The reverse was changed in1798 from the small eagle design to the Heraldic design that was a rendition of the great seal of the United States, bearing again the 13 stars. An original mintage of 54,417 coins were made but at this time in just MS60-65 (none higher than that level), there are a total of 333 coins between PCGS and NGC that have been graded, most below MS64. This coin was not meant to be saved but was to become the workhorse of the U.S. currency. An outstanding example with magnificent surfaces and obviously tucked away for us to behold for many years.

1834 Classic Head Half Eagle Plain 4 PCGS MS61 (CAC)

1834 Classic Head Half Eagle Plain 4 PCGS MS61 (CAC)

A very impressive and conditionally challenging example of this popular first-year of issue for the Classic Head series. Because of the large mintage of over $657 million, this coin is quite available in AU and XF grades, but finding one in uncirculated condition is quite a feat. This beautiful coin has luminous yellow surfaces with a precision like strike that shows amazing definition in all aspects of the design.

1835 Classic Head Half Eagle PCGS MS62 (CAC)

1835 Classic Head Half Eagle PCGS MS62 (CAC)

Congress reduced the authorized weight of the various denominations through the Act of June 28, 1834. On August 2, 1834, the new standard went into effect. For the quarter eagle the weight was reduced from 8.75 grams to 8.36 grams. To readily distinguish the new coins from the old, modified designs were introduced. Chief Engraver William Kneass created what we call the Classic Head today. This is an amazing example with fully struck devices that are set off by the creamy yellow-gold coloration. Among Classic Head issues, the 1835 is scarcer in Uncirculated grades than the more heavily produced 1834 and 1836.

1835 Classic Head Half Eagle PCGS MS63 (CAC)

1835 Classic Head Half Eagle PCGS MS63 (CAC)

Chief Engraver William Kneass created what we call today the Classic Head design which ran from 1834 to 1838. In 1834 Congress reduced the authorized weight of the various denominations through the Act of June 28, 1834. On August 2, 1834, the new standard went into effect. To readily distinguish the new coins from the old, modified designs were introduced. Gold supplies needed to be increased and many older coins were melted for the Classic Head, along with a variety of other sources which included gold found in Georgia, unfortunately this land was habited by Native Americans. Andrew Jackson an advocate of Indian Removal Act, with total disregard for the Supreme Court, moved these Native Tribes across the Mississippi to new reservations; this action was to become known as The Trail of Tears.

1838 Classic Head Half Eagle PCGS XF40 (CAC)

1838 Classic Head Half Eagle PCGS XF40 (CAC)

A very impressive example of the Classic Head Half Eagle that was designed by William Kneass, which was minted between 1834 to 1838. The reverse was the same as the Capped bust used in earlier years but omitting the motto E. Pluribus Unum. The obverse, although pressured to use the same Capped Bust design, Kneass altered the Classic Head design that was being used on Half Cents and Cents, thus turning out a gorgeous looking coin. The coins went out in circulation immediately with few being saved as souvenirs, making survivors very rare. Offered here is a great XF example that will surely delight you. There is still a ton of life left on this coin, with nice defined features and more luster than one would expect.

1843-D Liberty Half Eagle Medium D PCGS MS63 (CAC)

1843-D Liberty Half Eagle Medium D PCGS MS63 (CAC)

One of the more obtainable dates from the Dahlonega Mint, but far from being considered a common coin, no not common at all. The 1843 saw a mintage of over 98 thousand pieces and out of those there are only 10 coins deemed “uncirculated” by PCGS. This MS63 is one of only 4 coins to receive this grade with just 1 finer. A great coin with gorgeous, shimmering luster that illuminates the surfaces, while the sharply detailed devices float above for your viewing pleasure.
