1798 Capped Bust Right Half Eagle. Heraldic Eagle Small 8, 13-Star Reverse, AU55 NGC
A better variety of the 1798 Half Eagle, this eye appealing coin makes a strong visual impression. The definition is reasonably sharp on both sides. For the obverse, most of Liberty's hair curls are bold, and the scribe lines used by the engraver for placing the date are extraordinarily deep and touch the base of the digit 8. Equally bold definition is noted throughout the reverse, with much of the eagle's plumage crisp and visually attractive. Classic orange-gold and rose-russet shades adorn both sides, with remnant luster evident. The surfaces are nicer than usually seen on early half eagles.
Offered at $24,500
Although the San Francisco Mint coined more than a half-million double eagles in 1920, no significant quantities of the issue have been returned from international holdings, the source of many surviving Saint-Gaudens twenties of most issues. Many issues of the series have seen tens or even hundreds of thousands of certified pieces, yet the 1920-S has a total certified population of 178 coins, including 109 at PCGS, the ninth lowest total population at that grading service. This example has straw-gold surfaces with light rub on the highest points that limit the grade. Very few handling marks are evident, even with magnification. This is an exceptional example. Population: 22 in 58, 62 finer
