1831 Capped Bust Half Dollar. O-119. Rarity-3. MS-64 (PCGS). CAC. Lustrous and well struck for this die pairing, the stars on this near-Gem 1831 half dollar possess their radial centers and Liberty's curls are fully rounded by the dies. The obverse displays somewhat mottled gray toning over silver, while the reverse shows flashes of teal and russet along with the usual silver-gray. Scarce this nice and tied with a couple of others at the lower end of the Condition Census for this die pairing.
