1814 Capped Bust Half Dollar. O-102a. Rarity-1. MS-63 (NGC). Light-gold iridescence to both sides, the surfaces also revealing speckles of bolder charcoal-russet patina in and around the centers. This late die state example is ill defined at the borders, but the detail sharpens toward the centers except on the reverse where die swelling (as made) has left the eagle's left wing and leg incomplete. Both sides possess satiny luster and are free of distracting abrasions.
