1824 O-101 R2 1824/1 Capped Bust Half Dollar
O-101 R2 below, O-101a R2 at bottom
It is likely that the later die state is more scarce than the early state, and both combined equal an R2. There are a few gems at the top of the census along with a decent supply of AU's and other MS grades.
Variety Attribution: Obverse-1824 over 1. 1 shows near top of 4 on each side. Stars large and sharp. Date is a close 7 3/4 mm. with large 4 over 1. Serif of the overcut 1 shows at left and edge of stand at right of the top of 4. 2 and 4 nearly touch and are much closer than 182. This is the only 24 over 1 found, although two other varieties are often mistaken for over 1, but are actually over miscut 4's.
O-101: Reverse- 50 C. is 2 mm. and well centered. Arrow to A is 1/4 mm. Left sides T-I in line. The curved top of 5 is higher than 0. Center dot between crossbars 4 and 5. Top of U higher than N in UNITED.
O-101a: Die crack from edge below U joining top of UNITED. Another top of ERICA and one at top of TES OF A.
According to Edgar Souders, he estimates that the projected mintage for this overdate is approximately 412,347. This includes both O-101 and O-102. Get his book Bust Half Fever and read all about overdates and how he came up with the number!
