1809 Capped Bust Half Dollar. O-106. Rarity-3. AU-53 (PCGS). Silver and bright on the obverse with a touch of peripheral gold, while the reverse shows tawny-gray to gunmetal toning. Fairly well struck for this early half dollar variety, One old scuff on the lower right obverse blends well into the patina, and a coin tat shows ample eye appeal.
