An extremely popular die marriage among specialists, the 1817 O-101 is one of the boldest overdates in the Capped Bust Half Dollar series. The coin we offer here displays richly original toning in a blend of sandy-gray, golden-tan, blue-gray and copper-russet colors. There is some mottling to the patina, but no distracting abrasions make their presence felt. Well defined from a boldly executed strike.
