1818 Capped Bust Half Dollar. O-107. Rarity-1. AU-55 (PCGS). A handsome coin that shows enough luster to bring out the colorful yellow, green and blue iridescent shades on both sides. The strike is average, and single die clashing is noted from the wings, that are outlined in the obverse fields. Clean surfaces throughout, and especially attractive for the toning and high grade. For many years Vincent W. Alones was a frequently seen, popular, and much appreciated figure in East Coast numismatic circles, a friend to all, an advisor to many, and an all-around nice guy.
