Lot Description
1807 Capped Bust Half Dollar. O-112. Rarity-1. Capped Bust. Large Stars, 50/20. AU-55 (PCGS). CAC. Unlike most examples of this die marriage, this piece retains a trace (however faint) of the base of the 2 underdigit to the right of the base of the digit 5 in the denomination. Other positive attributes include a suitably bold strike, freedom from significant wear and lovely target toning in golden-apricot, sea-green and lavender-gray colors. The surfaces are also remarkably smooth for a circulated example of the first-year Capped Bust Half Dollar issue, and they even retain flickers of original luster around the peripheries. PQ!
