PCGS AU53 1804 SMALL 8 HALF EAGLE

BD-1, R-4+. Small 8. Late reverse die state with a cud over IT in UNITED.

1804 half eagles are known with a normal date (quickly identifiable by a Small 8) and the scarcer Small 8 over Large 8 which has strong visual appeal. As a date the 1804 is scarcer than the 1800 and 1803/2 and comparable to the 1802/1.

This well struck, bright example shows enough detail to grade AU55. The centers are sharp and the only weakness is seen on the stars at the right. While not really as "crusty" as I like, this coin has a pleasing commercial appearance.

No PCGS AU53 1804 Small 8 half eagle has sold at auction since 2005 and the last NGC AU53 brought $8,750 in October 2008. In the 2017 ANA sale, Stacks Bowers solda non-CAC PCGS AU55 for $11,750.

A nice piece for the type collector.
