Lot Description
1817/3 50C MS61 NGC. O-101a, R.2. Mint State overdate Bust Halves always command the respect of bidders at major auctions, and we expect that it will be no different with this BU quality example. The strike is average for the type with the reverse a little sharper than the obverse. Streaks of tan colored patina overlay the otherwise slate-gray surfaces. The obverse is a little lighter in appearance, but both sides are free of an excessive number of distractions. There is a moderate planchet flaw (as produced) over the middle of Liberty's portrait.
