1807 Half Dollar

1807 Half Dollar

1807 Half Dollar - A minor design change took place with the 1807 Half Dollar. Instead of ornamentation between the words of the edge lettering, a new device was used that had no ornaments. This new style continued in use for several decades. With its mintage of 301,076, the second largest in the series, the 1807 half dollar had many varieties because the need for many dies. PCGS lists 13 varieties by Overton numbers. Al Overton’s book Early Half Dollars Die Varieties lists all the die varieties in the half dollar series from 1794 to 1836.

This year also saw the issuance of the new Capped Bust half dollar designed by John Reich.
In its population report, PCGS has certified 1,226 Draped Bust, Large Eagles from 1807, and NGC has 878. These numbers include all varieties, but do not account for resubmissions and crossovers.
