1819 O-112 R3 Capped Bust Half Dollar

Obverse: 11
Reverse: J
O-112 R3 below, O-112a R3 at bottom.
I would bet that this one is tougher in the late die state than an R3, and this die marriage is generally tougher overall. There is a small group of high grade MS examples and only 5 AU's have appeared on the market the last 10 years landing this on my toughest R3 list.
