1836 Capped Bust Half Dollar. Lettered Edge. O-116. Rarity-2. 50/00. AU-55 (PCGS). Bright silver centers and flashy fields display a dash of colorful iridescence around the rims. Reasonably sharp in strike, especially on the central devices such as Liberty's curls and the eagle. Scarce this well preserved and a desirable example for the collector who appreciates eye appeal and quality.
