1802/0 Draped Bust Half Cent Penny - Reverse of 1800 - 2 Over 0
One major variety includes the 1802/0 Draped Bust Half Cent (Penny) which features the reverse design of 1800. First of all: This is an overdate error with an 1802 date struck over an 1800 date which resulted in the underlying "0" being seen completely around the number "2". This coin also features the older design on the reverse of the coin. The best way to identify this variety is to note the smaller letters and that there is a single leaf on the top of the right-side branch whereas the 1802 reverse has a double leaf instead. The difference between the reverse of 1800 vs reverse of 1802 is depicted below in the example comparison image of the coins:
