1818 Capped Bust Half Dollar. O-104a. Rarity-3. MS-64 (NGC). Frosty and bright with all the mint luster one hopes to find and toned with attractive orange-russet shades near the rims while the centers are bright silver. Minimal signs of bag handling, and the strike is sharp on the stars, curls and talons of the devices. This later die state includes a thin die crack that extends up through the first 8, jogs hard at Liberty's drapery and extends up and out the rim through the third and fourth obverse stars.
