USA Historical (scarce) Copper Draped Bust Half Cent, 1807, Km# 33
Historical Copper Draped Bust HALF. The coin is identified as KM# 33. The following is from the NGC site. The Half Cents dated 1807 were coined on planchets imported from Matthew Boulton & Company in England, as were all Half Cents of the Draped Bust type from 1803 onward. Only a single die pair is known for this date, and this essentially proves that the published mintage figure (476,000) is too high, as the Mint could not then achieve nearly half a million strikes from each die. Walter Breen suggested a net mintage of 38,000+ after deducting those struck in 1807 but dated 1806. Figure seems too small, given the general availability of circulated 1807 Half Cents, and the truth probably lies somewhere in-between the extremes. These rates do not apply to foreign purchasers, the rates depend on the country. This item is in the category "Coins & Paper Money\Coins: US\Half Cents\Draped Bust (1800-08)".
