1824 O-104 R2 Capped Bust Half Dollar
Reverse: B (Second Marriage)
This one is slightly more scarce in AU and MS grades, with a couple MS65's at the top, but lower MS coins not appearing very often, nor AU examples with many having been cleaned or damaged. May be worth a closer examination.
Variety Attribution: Obverse-Stars large and well formed. Star 13 is a close 1/4 mm to lower end of curl. Date is a close 8 mm., 1 has a thin base and a short pointed serif at top.
Reverse- 50 C. is large and widely spaced 2 3/4 mm. Arrow to A nearly touch. Right sides of T-I in line. Center dot on crossbar 4 but mostly between 3 and 4. Letters of legend all well separated. Small die dot between scrol and eagles head under U.
