1832 O-112 R2 Capped Bust Half Dollar
Obverse: 8 (Second Marriage)
Reverse: I (Third Marriage, in 1833 after 1833 O-115)
A readily available marriage with specimens graded all the way up to MS66. Known as the Dash Date marriage.
NGC Graded XF40. A crusty Barn Find with plenty of luster peeking through that makes me think '45. A fine example of the Dash Date variety.
Variety Attribution: Obverse-Stars well formed and clear of milling. Date is 8 mm. with rather thick (broad faced) figures. Quickly recognized by the horizontal dash or bar just to left of the base of one, where the one was first started too far to the left.
Reverse- 50 C. is 1 1/4 mm. and very high. Top of 5 is a short pointed triangle. Arrow to A is 1/2 mm. I is nearly centered under T. There are two dots 1 mm. apart between crossbars 4 and 5.
