1807 O-113 R2 Capped Bust Half Dollar

Obverse: 10
Reverse: I

Below is the O-113 R2 and the O-113a R3 is at bottom.

Another of the 4 Redbook varieties for 1807, making the demand high. R2 overall with the later die state supposedly an R3, but both may be R3 combined for an R2 rating. Many examples have problems of some sort, and lower grade examples are more readily available, with the higher grade XF and above 113's rather expensive. There are a couple of gems leading the pack in the census, with a handful of other lower grade MS coins in existance as well.
