1808 O-110 R4+ Capped Bust Half Dollar


Obverse: 9
Reverse: H (Second Marriage)
O-110 R5 is below, O-110a R4+ is at bottom.

The toughest of the 1808's. I suspect that it could be more of an overall R5 as I count only maybe 40-45 appearances the last 25 years or so. Not that that accounts for all of them, but it does suggest that fewer are out there than the 81-120 for an R4+. More importantly, around half the appearances are examples that have problems.
