1812 O-107 R1 Capped Bust Half Dollar
A common variety with examples available up to MS65. Look for the neat clashes present on the later die states.
PCGS Graded VF35. And a high end 35 at that. Gray toning and modest wear on this. Early die state, without the lump on the reverse above the eagle's left wing. Rotation is less than later examples. Still looks like a 40 to me.
NGC Graded AU55. Another example that does not have clash marks or a die lump above the left wing. Large die rotation on this one as well. Decent luster, but obviously has had a bath in the past.
Variety Attribution: Obverse-Date is 10 mm. with first 1 much higher than 812, the top of same only 3/4 mm. from drapery. 81 is closer than 18 or 12. All figures lean left. Mouth closed and lips curved. Tiny center dot on neck.
Reverse-50 C. is 2 mm. and low. Arrow to A is 3/4 mm. AME very close at base but do not touch. I is centered below below left side of T. A rough die lump near upper edge of left wing enlarged with use, but is visible to some degree on all specimens seen by (Al Overton/Don Parsley). A few earlier ones show a line across eagle's head that later disappears. many show clash marks and die lump above top of left wing.
