Lot Description
1820/19 50C Curl Base 2 AU58 NGC. O-102, R.1. Any 1820 Half Dollar enjoys great popularity as an early issue with one of the lowest mintages in the series (751,122 pieces). The clearly distinguishable overdate on the 1820/19 Curl Base 2 only compounds the coin's desirability. The present example is well defined on the design elements, and displays very strong dentilation. Silver-gray surfaces exhibit considerable luster in the recessed areas, and whispers of reddish-gold patina around the borders and in the fields. The few minor contact marks on Liberty's portrait are not offensive, and the devices are well centered on the planchet. From The Rocky Top Collection of Bust Half Dollars.
