1833 O-115 R5+ Capped Bust Half Dollar
Reverse: N (Second Marriage, First used in 1832 on O-111)
I think that this one may be downgraded to an R5. There seems to have been a rash of new examples appearing....A single MS coin and a small handful AU and XF coins have appeared over the past 20 years.
Variety Attribution: Obverse-Stars show considerable detail but not really sharp. Stars 8 and 13 are 1/2 mm. from cap and curl. Date is 8 mm.1 has a short serif and sharply higher than 8. Mouth slightly open. Star 10 shows a bit of recutting at 2 points. Do not confuse with Obverse 11. An opening in hair curl above second 3 in date. All stars drawn to edge on all observed specimens.
Reverse- The third line of stripe 3 extends into crossbars and points to right hand of two dots located between crossbars 4 and 5. A short triangular top to 5 with a pronged end. o is level with 5. 50 C. is 1 3/4 mm. Arrow to A is 1/2 mm. I is centered under T. Second T in STATES below A at base.
