Shout out to @Crusty for pointing me in the direction of this nice bust half. It’s an unbelievable coin that fits perfectly in my collection.

The pictures don’t do it justice but it’s wonderfully original with a tease of luster and album toning.

There’s a little green sticker on there I’ve been trying to peel off… 🤔


Post an 1807 if you’ve got one of any denomination!!!

BHNC #248 … 108 and counting.

    Awesome coin….I have some items in my shop that can help not only remove that pesky bean, but I can free that coin out of there! I will even use a brand new carbide end mill!

    I like these early Bust Half Dollars because of John Reich’s awkward looking eagle on the reverse. Nice coin!

    @Pnies20 ... That is a very nice addition to your collection... I like the XF45 grade on these old coins. Shows some commerce, but also protected for quite a while. Cheers, RickO

    Nice coin!

    I bought this one, of the same variety, in an AU-53 holder some years ago from Sheraton Downey. I probably paid a bit too much, but it is attractive.

    Very sweet coin, @pnies20! Congrats.

    Here's an O.114 from my set. Sometimes called "the real large stars".

    A bit of trivia about the 50/20. For a long time it was believed that Reich simply reached for the wrong number punch, a 2 instead of 5. But recent studies have proven it was the right punch, just upside down.

    Then there's the issue with large vs. small stars. Nowadays it is believed the there weren't two punches at play. It was a matter of striking force and die softness.

    Wow! Nice coin. A nice capped is a tougher find than a draped.

    That is one sweet coin! Even I, a non-fan of CBH would have bought it. :)
