1794 O-103 R5+ Flowing Hair Half Dollar

Obverse: 2
Reverse: C

Another tough die marriage, with fewer than 46 examples known to exist. The finest that has appeared in recent history is an NGC graded AU58, all others being VF and below. And no I am not talking about just the last 10 years. The Tomkins Tome states that this is really a solid R6, and only documents 10 examples. R6 falling around 20 total known.
