Description & Analysis

Half dollar production continued at a steady pace during 1813, resulting in another high mintage issue. Seven obverse dies were paired with eight reverses in various combinations for a total of ten die marriages. A few of these varieties are slightly scarce, but none come even close to being rare.

The most popular variety for 1813 is one on which the engraver seemingly lost his place. This is described in the entry following this one.

Many 1813 half dollars are seriously impaired by multiple die-clashings and extreme die erosion, sometimes in combination. Certain varieties are noted for this flaw and are somewhat rare in their prime die states.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
