1807 Draped Bust Half Dollar NGC AU53 CAC
She is a busty beauty with flowing long hair.
This 1807 classic silver half dollar, the Draped Bust, has outstanding eye appeal and a natural heft to hold in your hand.
Congress first authorized the creation of a half dollar in April, 1792. The Draped Bust version was struck from 1796 through 1807.
Collectors have numerous varieties to choose from when selecting half dollars.
These coins were engraved by the very first Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint – Robert Scot. The obverse features Liberty with long flowing hair facing right. LIBERTY and the date are featured at top and bottom.
The reverse reveals a heraldic bald eagle design. The eagle as it holds arrows and an olive branch with its talon.
Silver half dollars from the Flowing Hair motif to the Draped Bust version to the Barber half dollars have attracted a large and active collector base. This outstanding specimen will appeal to numismatics of high quality rarities as well as those specializing in early half dollar varieties.
