1812 O-107 R1 Capped Bust Half Dollar
A common variety with examples available up to MS65. Look for the neat clashes present on the later die states. This Die Marriage typically or perhaps always is found with a noticeable rotation present obverse vs reverse.
Variety Attribution: Obverse-Date is 10 mm. with first 1 much higher than 812, the top of same only 3/4 mm. from drapery. 81 is closer than 18 or 12. All figures lean left. Mouth closed and lips curved. Tiny center dot on neck.
Reverse-50 C. is 2 mm. and low. Arrow to A is 3/4 mm. AME very close at base but do not touch. I is centered below below left side of T. A rough die lump near upper edge of left wing enlarged with use, but is visible to some degree on all specimens seen by (Al Overton/Don Parsley). A few earlier ones show a line across eagle's head that later disappears. Many show clash marks and die lump above top of left wing.
