Lot Description
1831 Capped Bust Half Dollar. O-104. Rarity-1. MS-64 (PCGS). Condition Census quality for this variety, and&nbsp;a handsome and respectable representative of this type as well. Iridescent orange-gold toning with peripheral blue-green accents and quite lively when studied. The fields show considerable luster and the strike is sound for this die pairing, as the curls and feathers of their respective devices show well. Moderate peripheral softness on the stars and legends as commonly seen for this era. Tied with a couple of others as the fourth finest reported in Steve Herrman's <em>Auction &amp; Mail Bid Prices Realized for Bust Half Dollars 1794 - 1839.</em>
