A lovely example of this popular first year of issue coin, with nice, meaty details and a perfect planchet. Smooth and choice for the grade, this is the perfect piece for the advanced type or half dollar collector. CAC approved for quality.
The 1801 half dollar is a very challenging issue in the Flowing Hair series -- especially tough in higher circulated grades. A nice VF20 example housed in an older ANACS holder. Light attractive obverse toning as well.
Heavy die crack/retained cud curves from the rim through the first "S" in STATES across clouds and then back to the rim through the right foot of the "E" and across the last "S".
