1807. Capped Bust Left. . BD-8, Breen-6453. NGC graded MS-62. Well struck and mostly untoned. Only 51,605 minted. A smooth and virtually mark-free select coin with a gradation of luster across the fields and devices on both sides. The contact from the dies is virtually complete, although perhaps a hint of weakness is seen at the upper edge of the rim above TE(S) on the reverse, involving those letters as well. This is due to minor adjustment along the upper reverse rim. In 1807, the switch was made from the Capped Bust Right, Heraldic Eagle design to this newer, fresher one by John Reich which has Liberty facing left and a simplified eagle. Reichs secret "signature" is visible in the final star on the right where there is a small notch in one of the star points. A handsome Mint State example for the collector of early U.S. gold. Struck at the time Thomas Jefferson was President of the United States and the famous Fulton Steamboat began to ply its trade. Pop 43; 43 finer (PCGS # 8092) .
Estimated Value $12,000 - 13,000.

Realized $13,800
