Description & Analysis

The U.S. half eagles from the opening years of the 1800s are a comedy of errors. After producing normally dated half eagles in 1800, the Mint produced no 1801-dated half eagles, yet the half eagles of 1802 are all 1802/1 overdates. Similarly, although there are no normally dated (nonoverdate) 1802 half eagles, the half eagles of 1803 all are 1803/2 overdates.
