Jaime Hernandez:

The 1807 Bearded Goddess Half Dollar is a very sought after variety as the so called beard underneath the chin of Miss Liberty is very dramatic and visible to the naked eye. This variety was the result of a die being overused to strike coins resulting in a large die crack in between Liberty's chin, which runs all the way down to the top of the 1 digit in the date.

The variety itself is very scare with very few examples known. This variety is unknown in Uncirculated grades at PCGS, with the finest example being graded AU55 and none being finer.
