BD-1, R-2.

The 1813 is far and away the most available date of the rare Capped Head Left half eagle type. There are hundreds known in the EF-AU range and this is a great choice for type given the rarity of most of the other dates. Nice AU examples are not easy to locate, especially with natural color and choice surfaces.

This is a textbook coin for the grade with natural russet color which changes to a medium olive hue in the fields. The strike is sharp with bold central and peripheral details while the surfaces show minimal marks. The overall eye appeal is excellent.

A total of four PCGS AU53′s have sold at auction since 2/12 with just one (this coin) showing CAC approval. Prices have ranged from a low of $8,813 to a high of $9,400.

This is among the more difficult holes to fill in a 19th century US gold type set and this 1813 should appeal to a broad range of collectors.

CAC has approved eight in this grade with 58 finer.
