1832 O-114 R4+ Capped Bust Half Dollar
Obverse: 9 (Second Marriage)
Tough in decent, high grade examples, but can be had if one is patient. Uncirculated examples are prohibitively rare.
NGC Graded XF45. A colorful envelope toned example of a rather scarce variety. This one does seem to appear often enough to make me question the 4+ rating. Decent luster remains.
Variety Attribution: Obverse-Die dot at throat. Date is 8 mm. and low. No milling and all stars drawn to edge. double profile at lips.
Reverse- 50 C. is 3/4 mm. and high. Arrow to A is 1/4 mm. I is centered under T. Lines of stripe 3 penetrate to crossbar 6. The lowest crossbar extends past shield on right.
