1805 Half Cent
NGC VG Details
Small 5 with Stems. Cohen-3
From 1800-1805, the Draped Bust design was used on all copper half cents. This 1805 Half cent is one of the scarcer varieties due to the combination of a Small 5 obverse and Stems reverse. The "Small 5" refers to the date on the obverse which has a smaller than normal "5". The stems refer to the stems that are present in the wreath on the reverse.
This example has been graded Very Good by NGC and it is priced very reasonably at $1,495. In fact, a PCGS F15 graded version of this coin went for $2,875 in 2010.
