1825 O-112 R3 Capped Bust Half Dollar
NGC Graded AU55. Picked this up way back in 2006 as my first Capped Bust Half Dollar when I returned to collecting. It got me going on my quest for The Club. Pleasing original surfaces this. I know some like more flash, but this one has a great look the way it is.
Variety Attribution: Obverse-Stars are large and close to milling. Star 13 just misses touching curl. Date is 8 mm.with 82 very close and base of 2 lower than other figures. Mouth slightly open.
Reverse- 50 C. is slightly over 1 1/2 mm. and low. Arrow to A is 1 mm. There is a vertical die defect line through upper 4 crossbars at right. Line 3 of stripe 2 and line 1 of stripe 4 extend to third crossbar. I is centered under right side of T.
