Description 1807 $5 Bust Left AU58 NGC. CAC. BD-8, R.2. Bass-Dannreuther Die State c/a. The Capped Bust Left design by John Reich replaced Robert Scot's Draped Bust Right motif in September of 1807, with a total of 51,605 Capped Bust fives struck in the final months of that year. Both designs are somewhat available for this transition year, although few have the originality and eye appeal of this yellow-gold example. Abundant mint luster remains over minimally marked surfaces. A sharp strike confirms the near-Mint designation of this attractive, early half eagle. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $10868.75. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
