Our Spring 2019 Baltimore Auction, taking place from February 27 through March 5, is highlighted by an exceptional group of early half eagles from the Capped Bust Right series. Among the most impressive is an incredible 1797/5 BD-7, certified MS-61 (NGC) and assigned a Rarity-6+ rating. The overdate seen on this variety is one of the boldest in the entire realm of American coinage, easily as plain as the 1942/1-D dime, 1918/7-D nickel, 1918/7-S quarter, and other well-known overdates.​​
