Draped Bust $5.00 Half Eagle:

In 1807, John Reich, was appointed as Second Engraver at the United States Mint in Philadelphia. Instead, Reich created a totally new design, called the “Draped Bust” style. Miss Liberty appeared a bit older and more mature. She faced left, wore a soft Phrygian cap with “LIBERTY” emblazoned across her prominent headband. She was surrounded by 13 six-pointed stars – seven to the left and six to the right. The current date was displayed below her.

The reverse depicted a smaller eagle, with upraised and outstretched wings. The legend “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” surmounted the eagle. A banner on which was inscribed “E PLURIBUS UNUM” was above the eagle but below the legend. The eagle held arrows and an olive branch in her talons as her predecessors had done. Below the eagle the denomination was expressed as “5 D.”
