1813 Capped Head Left. . BD-1, S of STATES centered over E. SEGS graded MS-61. Light hairlines in the obverse fields. With more than 50 percent more coins struck for this type than for the previous type, one would think that the dates and varieties of 1813-28 would be seen more often than those of the previous type (1807-12). Because there were relatively few gold coins in circulation stateside from 1812 onward, and none were seen after 1821 until the introduction of the lighter gold coins after July 31, 1834, this turns out to be a scarce Type. Many were exported for use elsewhere, or melted and turned into local coins. Some estimates suggest that only 2% or 3% of the original mintage survives. Mint State quality specimens are scarcer still. A well struck, attractive example.
Estimated Value $7,500 - 8,000.

Realized $10,638
