1831 Capped Bust Half Dollar. O-106. Rarity-3. MS-62 (NGC). Mottled cobalt-blue iridescence is confined to isolated peripheral areas on both sides of this otherwise more lightly patinated example. The central obverse exhibits pinkish-silver tinting, while the reverse is even lighter in a veil of golden iridescence. Sharply struck in and around the centers, and silent on the subject of mentionable abrasions.
