1799 Capped Bust Right Half Eagle. BD-2. Rarity-5+. Small Reverse Stars. MS-62 (PCGS). CAC. CMQ.This elusive 1799 half eagle displays attractive color on both sides. Viewed under a light, the surfaces alternate between vivid reddish-gold and deeper orange-olive. Much of the original finish remains, the texture predominantly of a frosty nature yet with modest semi-reflective qualities evident. A touch of softness in the centers is typical of the die pairing, although apart from missing hair detail to Libertys portrait and the smooth appearance to the eagles breast and the upper portion of the shield, both sides exhibit considerable boldness commensurate with the desirable Mint State rating from PCGS. BD Die State b/e, with several peripheral cracks on the reverse, although fewer and less advanced than those seen on the example in the following lot.<p>The fledgling United States Mint required four obverse and nine reverse dies to strike an estimated 10,000 to 15,000 half eagles bearing the 1799 date. Excessive die failure was a problem for this issue, as it was throughout the earliest years of Mint operations. BD-2, offered here, is one of the few varieties of the date that displays an arc pattern of stars in the reverse field above the eagle, similar to the arrangement seen on the Great Seal of the United States. This die, which was first used to strike 1798 half eagles of the BD-5 variety, is attributed to John Smith Gardner.<p>As a date 1799 half eagles are considerably rarer than their 1800-dated counterparts, and all known die marriages of the former are elusive in numismatic circles. BD-2 has an extant population of only 35 to 45 coins, confirming the significance of the present offering for early gold variety specialists as well as more generalized, albeit equally advanced collectors.PCGS# 8081. NGC ID: 25NT.CAC Stickered Population (all die marriages of the issue); 10 in all Mint State grades.
