1834 Capped Bust Half Dollar. O-116. Rarity-1. Small Date, Small Letters. MS-65 (PCGS). Distinguishable by 2 pair of twin segments opposite star 8; crossbars 4 and 5 extend into eagle's right wing. Slightly mottled shades of dove-gray and khaki-gray tint can be found on both sides. The surfaces are generally free from distracting abrasions and ticks, as expected of the Gem grade. While striking incompleteness appears on both sides, an effect more prominent on the reverse, the designs are overall bold.
