1825 O-118 R7+ Capped Bust Half Dollar
Reverse: C (Second Marriage, first use in 1824, O-116)
This rare marriage is likely one of the set stoppers for someone collecting all Overton varieties or even making an 1825 set. A VF35 specimen is tops, and any new discovery also makes headlines in the Bust Half world.
Variety Attribution: Obverse-Heavy die crack extends from lower edge to curls passing between 2 and 5. Star 11 has lower 3 points recut.
Reverse- 50C is 1 3/4 mm. Arrow to A is 3/4 mm. I is centered under left side of T. No center dot but a vertical like at left end of the upper five crossbars. In addition to the joined ED and AM, ME are very close and M is higher. This same reverse used in 1824 (O-116).
