Ron Guth:

Certain of the 1795 Half Eagles with the so-called Small Eagle reverse show the final S of STATES punched over a D. This is both a popular and a rare variety. Dannreuther estimates that only 8 to 12 examples exist. The variety is easily attriubuted because the overpunching is quite obvious (apparently, no attempt was made to efface the mistake). Additional attribution points include a long, curving line to the left of the first A in AMERICA, caused by a slip of the tool used by the engraver to create the denticled border. Similar, but smaller, slips appear above the second T and the E of STATES.

The finest example is a single Prooflike example with a PCGS estimated grade of MS64.
