1794 O-102 R6+ Flowing Hair Half Dollar

Obverse: 1 (Second Marriage)
Reverse: B
14-15 known. The finest that has appeared in recent times is just a lowly NGC graded VF35. If there is one finer, it has been hidden away in a collection for a very long time (there appears to be an XF out there someplace). The most recent appearance was from the Hilt collection which had just VG details with obverse graffiti. A true rarity!
