1831 O-113 R4 Capped Bust Half Dollar
Reverse: I (Second Marriage)
Variety Attribution: Obverse-Star 8 nearly 3/4 mm. from cap and star 13 very close to curl. Stars are usually flat with rather blunt points. Date is a close 7 mm. with blunt 1's and a 3 that is heavy and boldly curved. Two pair of segments in milling below end of bust are joined like Siamese twins. This obverse is similar to obverse 6 (O-109 and O-110) but definitely different. Small die defect causes a lump above clasp and right of curl.
Reverse- 50 C. is 1 1/2 mm. and tipped left. Arrowheads well separated. Arrow to A is 1/4 mm. Right sides T-I in line. is centered under right side of D. Die is well worn with little or no milling and some of the letters are drawn to edge. usually the top of 5 is very weak and arrow shafts may be weak or broken near right claw.
