1809 O-114 R5 Capped Bust Half Dollar

Obverse: 7 (Second Marriage)
Reverse: K
O-114 R5 (Prime) is below, O-114a R5 is at bottom.
Another extraordinarily tough marriage, where most are low grade or have problems or both, and there may only be a pair that would qualify as AU. It is likely that the 114a is more common than the 114.
