Classic Head Half Eagle

The obverse displays a left facing lady wearing headband with the word LIBERTY running through it. There is thirteen six point stars that encircle the lady's head and the date is centered at the bottom of the coin. The reverse shows the outstretched-wing eagle with a shield over the eagle’s breast. The phrase UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is displayed across the reverse, broken into three parts by the eagle’s wing tips, follows the periphery inside a dentilled rim, and the denomination written as 5 D. (dollars) centers at the bottom of the coin.
