1812 Capped Bust Half Dollar. O-104. Rarity-1. MS-64 (PCGS). A smooth, satiny piece, a bit more vibrancy to the luster is probably all this coin would have needed to secure an even higher grade. We also note generally sharp definition to both sides, as well as an even endowment of light golden-silver patina. The reverse is rotated nearly 90 degrees clockwise from normal coin alignment.
