REALLY ATTRACTIVE PCGS/CAC MS63+ 1803/2 HALF EAGLE

BD-4, R-4. Perfect T in LIBERTY.

Four die varieties of this date exist: two with a Perfect T in LIBERTY and two with the right foot of the T missing. Collectors like the BD-4 variety as many show a visually impressive die crack along the base of the date into the fields. As a date, the 1803/2 is comparatively available but properly graded MS63 and finer pieces are seldom available except when great collection such as Western Springs II come available.

This is an exceptional 1803/2 half eagle which has never been processed or had its surfaces altered chemically. It shows thick, frosty luster below very pleasing natural green-gold hues. The obverse shows a few small ticks in the fields but is clearly finer than the "typical" MS63 while the reverse is nearly of Gem quality although there are a few diagonal adjustment marks (mint-made) on the shield and arrows plus at the word OF in the legend.

No MS63+ 1803/2 half eagle has ever sold at auction. The last two records for PCGS coins are $25,800 (in 2012) and $27,600 (in early 2012); the latter was CAC approved but was not nearly as choice as the present piece.

If available, a nice PCGS MS64 example of this date would likely bring in excess of $50,000. In my opinion, this wonderful MS63+ is an exceptional coin with as much eye appeal as many in MS64 holders.

CAC has approved nine in MS63 (including this one in MS63+) with eight finer.
