1827 O-127 R5 Capped Bust Half Dollar
Obverse: 4 (Second Marriage)
A tough marriage, with a single MS example at the top of the census. The recent Skidaway Island sale actually had three problem free examples for sale. They can be cherried if one is on the ball, but still hard to come by and there is a rather steep premium.

Reverse- 50 C. is 1 mm. with a large C. Arrow to A is 3/4 mm. Right side of T and left side of I in line.Center line of stripe 5 through 4 crossbars. Besides the center line of stripe 5, there are several other lines extending to crossbars 2 and 3.
