1819 O-115 R3 Capped Bust Half Dollar
This marriage is a slightly tougher marriage. There are a couple of MS64's at the top, one of which is the Overton plate coin, along with several other MS examples. AU's are not that common though.
Former NGC XF40. This one I am pretty certain has been dug. The surface is scratched. Areas of deep toning remain, and there is decent luster, along with AU details.
A little bonus edge image here with OR and HALF coming together giving us OHRALF
