1801 Draped Bust Half Dollar. O-102. Rarity-4. VF-35 (PCGS). Gunmetal-gray and attractive surfaces for this variety, with smooth wear on the high points and no surface problems. On this variety the reverse die has no rust lumps, and the fields are smooth. Scarce at this grade level and a date that has proven to be a lot tougher than many collectors believed. Finding a high grade piece is quite a challenge, especially with this degree of eye appeal.
