1811 O-108 R2 Small 8 Capped Bust Half Dollar
This one is common in all grades, with even a few MS66 examples out there as survivors and a single MS67 O-108.
PCGS Graded AU58. Another favorite. Fantastic look, this. Only slight rub, and a whole lot of flash. Pretty colors in the periphery.
This otherwise smoky-gray example reveals beautiful undertones of electric-blue and salmon-pink iridescence at more direct angles. Well struck over the central devices, with trivial highpoint rub and no outwardly distracting abrasions.
Variety Attribution: Obverse-Star 13 is 1/2 mm. from curl. date is 9 1/4 mm and 11 is widest. Center dot on neck. 8 has crude overlapping circles.
Reverse- 50 C. is 2 mm. and slightly low, with a slender 5. Arrow to A is 1/2 mm. There is a tiny spike at each side of right wing. Left side of I is centered under T.
O-108a: Die cracks- One across tip of left wing to UNITED S. Another crosses this one from edge to scroll just left of S. Another from tip of right wing to arrow shafts. Little or no milling.
