1802. PCGS graded AU-53. Housed in a new secure plus holder. Even toning. The surfaces and color on this rare date are very attractive. We note steel gray tones with more than enough golden luster within the devices on both sides to entice buyers. Sharp and well preserved, with full sharp curls on Liberty and sharp details on the eagle's wings. Most of the stars are also well formed. A true rarity in this grade, it deserves a place in the finest collection. An valuable conquest for the energetic Bust Half Dollar specialist.

In a series where there are many die varieties and subvarieties, the 1802 half dollar mintage stands out for its uniqueness: the 29,890 pieces were struck from a single die pair. There are no others varieties for the date. Pop 5; 10 finer, 1 in 55, 7 in 58, 2 in 62 (PCGS # 6065) .
Estimated Value $9,000 - 10,000.
Ex: Pryor Collection.

Realized $13,225
