1828 Capped Bust Half Dollar. O-116. Rarity-2. Square Base 2, Small 8s, Large Letters. MS-64 (PCGS). Lustrous with a mix of gray and tawny-brown toning on the obverse, with the centers attractive. On the reverse the lustrous fields give way golden accents and deeper gray around the rims. A few shallow marks are noted upon close examination, but close to the Gem level for this scarce issue. The strike is fairly sharp on Liberty's curls and the eagle, with just a couple of stars softly impressed at their centers.
