1805 O-108 R4+ Draped Bust Half Dollar

Obverse 4
Reverse B (Third Marriage)


There appear to be only 2 MS survivors, one with adjustment marks. Beyond that, there are 3-4 AU examples, the rest being XF40 and below. Only 16-18 (not sure if a couple are dupes) examples have shown up in sale and auction records, so this die marriage may fall short of the 80 required to make it a high R4.
