Description & Analysis

The Capped Head Left half eagle is one of the most difficult U.S. types to acquire. A few dates, such as the 1813, 1818, 1820, and 1823, emerge on occasion, while the other dates are significant rarities. The 1826 appears at auction only every few years, usually in Mint State and out of the reach of most collectors.
