1824 O-114 R5- Capped Bust Half Dollar
Obverse: 11 (Second Marriage)
Reverse: M (Second Marriage, first used in 1823)
This one is rather tough, with the nice examples seemingly all absorbed by collections, and most AU and MS examples having not appeared on the market in over ten years. A single MS62 tops the Census.
Variety Attribution: Obverse-Star 7 is extra large and point is very close above front of cap. Date is a close 7 1/2 mm. arge and rather high with point of 4 and serif of 2 nearly touching. Mouth is open. Most show a die swelling on neck from curl to front of throat. Prime die state has a die line through upcurl of 2.
Reverse- 50 C. is 2 1/2 mm. Arroheads are separated. Arrow to A is 1/4 mm. etters of legend all large, all separated at bases and the entire legend very close to the milling. I centered under T. Right side of stands of D-E are in line.
