1806 Draped Bust Half Dollar. Pointed 6, stem through claw. PCGS graded MS-62 CAC Approved. In PCGS holder 11785647. Nice and frosty with the reverse softly struck near the eagle's head. The 1806 halves come in seven major varieties, including two overdates (6-over-5 and 6-over-inverted-6), three with a knobbed 6 in the date and two with a pointed 6. By far the rarest is the knobbed-6 variety on which the stem of the olive branch doesn't extend through the eagle's claw. Despite their relatively high mintage, few 1806 draped bust, heraldic eagle half dollars were preserved in mint condition. Pop 1; none finer for the variety at PCGS. (PCGS # 39329) .

The first obverse star is high relative to the curl and the branch stem is long; these identify this Pointed 6, Stem die marriage. There is a faint die crack through TED, continuing across the wingtip and on to STATES.
Estimated Value $10,000 - 12,000.
