1834 Capped Bust Half Dollar. O-107. Rarity-1. Large Date, Small Letters. MS-63 (PCGS). CAC. Amazing toning of rich coppery-russet and red nearly to the centers, framed in deep blue, green and iridescent jewel tones around the rims. Perfectly matched on the obverse and reverse. The strike is reasonably sharp and the surfaces pleasing, but this piece will go for the extraordinary toning which most collectors can appreciate.
