The NGC Universal ID is a four digit alphanumeric that groups coins based on a unique combination of date, mintmark, denomination and striking process (MS, PF, or SP). These IDs are a simple organization of all coins prior to variety attribution and grading.
Beginning in 1818 and continuing through 1829, half eagles bore Robert Scot's copy of John Reich's original Capped Head design. While Reich's trademark notched star does not appear on these later pieces, the most significant alteration is Liberty's coarser hair and the richer detail in the cap that resulted from the lower relief. Slightly rarer than the 1813, but not as rare as the 1814/3 and 1820, the 1818 as an issue falls in the middle of the Capped Head Left series
A total of 48,588 Capped Head Left half eagles were minted in 1818, with three die varieties known for the date. As a date, 1818 half eagles have always been prized by collectors.
