1809 O-111 R2 Capped Bust Half Dollar


Obverse: 6
Reverse: H

O-111 R2 (Prime) is below, O-111a R2 is at bottom. There are O-111a examples with an III edge. 

This is my #4 toughest problem free R2's with only 10 AU examples appearing the past 10 years, 3 of those being more than 8 years ago. There are a few MS examples, yet they rarely appear with but 2 MS coins showing up over 10 years.
