Prior to the publication of Early U.S. Gold Coin Varieties in 2006, there was considerable confusion surrounding the half eagle die varieties of 1805 and 1806. Some coins were routinely offered as “new varieties” because they didn’t match anything in Walter Breen’s 1960s-era monograph. One later author described seven 1805 half eagle varieties, and noted that five of those seven were unlisted in Breen. Finally, using the observations of Harry Bass, Dannreuther correctly published the five known varieties in his 2006 reference, creating order out of chaos. When viewed in hand, this coin is lighter and far more lustrous and flashier than seen in in our images. The NGC population is just 16 with 4 higher.
