AU Details 1804 Half Eagle 1804 Half Eagle Normal or Small 8. BD-2. Blunt 1. Rarity-4+. Genuine, Cleaned – AU Details PCGS. Though apparently thumbed and brushed lightly at some point, this AU Details half eagle still has a lot to offer. The warm yellow-gold centers fade off to pale crimson-orange at the rims, marking a coin that is returning to a somewhat more natural state after the untoward attentions of a well-meaning numismatist of the past. Other than hairlines, there are no obvious marks present to the unassisted eye. At least one bidder will recognize the quality through the haze of qualifiers.
The present specimen presents an interesting early die state. The obverse has a light crack upward from a dentil through the left side of the inner space of the 0 in the date, then upward further across Liberty’s shoulder drapery, terminating at the juncture of the two sweeping curls above; no other die markers are noted. The reverse exhibits a crack from the rim at E of AMERICA across the field where it joins the lowest wing feathers and the lowest horizontal lines in the right side of the shield. Another crack runs from the rim at 10 o’clock through the upper portion of the eagle’s wing, and then continuing on the other side of the ribbon across the small patch of field and diagonally downward, terminating in the lowest horizontal lines of the shield directly beneath the center point; these two small cracks could represent the same crack.
