PCGS AU50 1806 POINTED 6 HALF EAGLE
While it brings just a small premium in circulated grades, the 1806 Pointed 6 is far scarcer than its counterpart the Knobbed 6. It is not often seen in collector grades, and even less frequently with good eye appeal.
This piece shows a typical strike for the date and die variety with weakness at the centers. The obverse and reverse show medium green-gold color with a good deal of dirt in the recesses. It is likely that this piece was lightly wiped decades ago as there are some hairlines beneath the toning but the appearance is pleasing for the grade.
Surprisingly, only one PCGS AU50 example of this date has sold at auction since June 2006 and it was a low-end piece that realized $8,100 as Heritage 2/19: 3817. In January 2019, Heritage sold an NGC AU53 for $10,200.
This is an interesting option for the collector seeking an affordable Bust Right half eagle.
