In 1807, a new design by John Reich appeared on Half Dollars, eventually spreading to all the denominations. The new design featured a mature bust of Liberty with a cap on her head and the word LIBERTY on the cap's band. The reverse featured an eagle with it's wings spread in a more natural pose than on the previous Heraldic Eagle design. The Capped Bust type lasted on most coins until late in the 1830s. This set includes only the silver denominations. Both circulation strikes and Proofs can be used to complete this set.
