DRAPED BUST, LARGE EAGLE REVERSE HALF DOLLAR (1801-1807)

1805 Half Dollar

1805 Half Dollar

1805 Half Dollar - The 1805 Half Dollar has two main varieties, the Normal Date and the Overdate, 5 over 4. Since there are no 1804 half dollars, it is assumed that the dies for 1804 were unused and simply over stamped with a 5 for the next year. Two different dies have overdates, and both of them have the 4’s clearly visible under the 5 without magnification. All of the Overdate 1805/4 half dollars are scarce, and one variety (Overton 103) is rare. The Overdates are approximately two or three times rarer than the Normal Date. All Mint state 1805 half dollars are exceedingly rare regardless of variety.

The 1805 half dollar had a mintage of 211,722. In its population report, NGC shows a total of 321 Normal Dates and 97 Overdates. PCGS has 463 Normal Dates and 174 Overdates. These numbers do not account for resubmissions and crossovers.
