1812/1 Capped Bust Half Dollar. O-102. Rarity-2. Small 8. AU-58 (PCGS). Lustrous and attractive for the delicate golden-gray toning on the obverse and reverse. The strike is full on Liberty's curls and as usually seen the upper left stars on the obverse are soft at their centers. Sharp on the eagle's feathers and shield. Excellent surfaces and highly appealing. Later die state with clashing evident as well as the peripheral devices are drawn toward the edge. Rare in this potent collector grade, and a wise option to obtain as the overdate features never go out of style.
