1826 O-110 R2 Capped Bust Half Dollar

Obverse: 7
Reverse: J
This one is readily available in higher grades up to a pair of MS67's and even a few 66's.

NGC Graded XF45. Nice original coin with borderline AU luster. It is an important coin to have since the Overton 4th edition has an incorrect picture of the reverse for this variety.

Variety Attribution: Obverse-Stars are large with blunt points.  Date is 8 mm.with 82 closer than 18 or 26 and curl of 2 has a blunt end. 8 is recut in upper loop.

Reverse- 50 C. is 2 mm. and well centered. Arrow to A is 1/2 mm. Right sides of T-I in line. Center dot between crossbars 4 and 5. Arrowheads close and attached by small defects.

Notes:
In the 4th edition of the Overton/Parsley book, the picture is not reverse J in the illustration, but is actually reverse K. The above is the actual coin, so it is the proper reverse.
