1827 O-133 R4 Capped Bust Half Dollar
Obverse: 21 (Third Marriage)
A nice AU coin may be tough, but there are several high grade coins in the census. It seems like decent AU's rarely appear on the market.
Variety Attribution: Obverse-Nearly all stars show recutting with small extra points, with stars 7, 11, and 12 the most noticeable. Star 1 is 1 mm. from Drapery. Star 13 is 1/4 mm. from Curl. Date is 8 mm, with a tall serif on base of 2. A die line (extension of curl) between L and I in LIBERTY joins headband to curl at bottom and to cap above. Only a few portions of the recutting of stars show in this marriage.
Reverse- 50 C. is 1 1/2 mm. and high. Arrow to A is 3/4 mm. left side of I centered under T. About half of the stripe lines extend to second crossbar. A die defect line 1 1/2 mm. long extends upward from right eagles claw at shield.
