1814 O-109 R2 Capped Bust Half Dollar


Obverse: 8
Reverse: I

There are a few gems at the top of the census, but this marriage does not appear quite as often as an R2 would indicate. Very tough above the XF grade in a problem free state.

PCGS Graded XF45. Another one that looks like an old barn find. Lots of crust. Luster is buried beneath a thick layer of oxidation. Has an AU level of detail.
