1809 O-105 R2 Capped Bust Half Dollar

Obverse: 3
Reverse: D
This die marriage ranks #3 on my R2 tough list with only 8 problem free AU coins appearing the last 10 years. The strike weakness on this one is the norm, making it less of a choice for type sets. There may be an MS coin out there, but for the most part XF and below examples are what collectors are most likely to find.
