1809 Capped Bust Half Dollar. O-106. Rarity-3. AU-55 (PCGS). A gorgeous example of the date and grade combination. Highly lustrous with brilliant centers that yield to rich peripheral gold, crimson, and neon blue highlights. The strike is crisp and just a touch of wear impedes the high points. Marks? You'll be challenged to find any, even under low magnification. Absolutely choice both physically and aesthetically, and worth a premium bid as such.
