1818 O-113 R3 Capped Bust Half Dollar
Slightly tougher die marriage with a small handful MS examples up to MS65. There are proof examples of this marriage, so perhaps look for prooflike examples.
PCGS Graded XF45. A nice original Gray coin with mushy central detail obverse.
Variety Attribution: Obverse-Star 13 is only 1/4 mm. from curl. Date is 9 1/2 mm. and low. First 18 wide, 81 close. Mouth is open. All or nearly all specimens show a fine crack at upper points of star 7, that gradually extends across headband, ear, curls and upper points of star 11 to edge. (This example does not have a crack).
Reverse- 50 C. is 1 1/2 mm. Arrow to A is 1/2 mm. Arrowheads close and lightly connected. Stand of E is centered under D. Right side of T and left side of I in line. AM close with base of A higher.
