1835 Capped Bust Half Dollar. O-101. Rarity-1. MS-64+ (PCGS). Secure Holder. Cartwheel luster graces the fields while the devices are satiny and bright. Delicate toning of gold and faint yellow hues adds to the allure. The strike is sharp on the stars and Liberty's curls, also on the eagle although a hint of softness is found on the left wing of the eagle. Outstanding surface quality as close examination finds just one or two faint nicks and no marks that merit any attention.
