Pop 12 with 1 finer. The 1 underdigit is centered within the 2 in the date. Although two obverse dies were apparently prepared in 1801, no half eagles were struck bearing that date. The unused dies were overdated and pressed into service. All 1802-dated fives are overdates. The present high-grade example has semiprooflike fields and radiant lemon-gold devices. The strike is consistent and this attractive near-Gem is an ideal candidate to represent the Heraldic Eagle design. NGC Price Guide...$59,000.
