1822 O-107 R2 Capped Bust Half Dollar
Button Cap Variety
A slightly tougher yet interesting variety, where MS64 may be the top of the census. Keep an eye out for this one if you want one as they do seem to not appear quite as often as one may suspect.
Variety Attribution: Obverse-Star 1 is 1 1/4 mm. from cap Drapery. Star 7 is very close to front of cap and about 1/2 mm. above headband. Date is 8 1/2 mm. A button at the folded down crown of the cap. Only such variety seen.
Reverse- 50C is 2 mm. Arrow to A is 1/2 mm. Words of legend close together with approximately 1 mm. between D-S, S-O and F-A at closest points, while all letters are well separated.
