1809 Capped Bust Half Dollar. O-110. Rarity-4. XXXX Edge. EF-40 (PCGS). Otherwise untoned surfaces exhibit blushes of pretty champagne-russet iridescence here and there at the denticles. Flickers of original luster are still discernible at more direct angles, there being only light wear to report and no individually distracting abrasions. Mentionable softness of strike is confined to the central obverse, the balance of the features presenting as quite bold.
