1827 O-115 R2 Capped Bust Half Dollar
This one is surprisingly tough for an R2, with only 2 MS examples appearing since 2009 (3 in the last 10 years overall). The Overton plate coin may be finest at MS65. Few AU examples have appeared as well coming in at around 9. I am adding this one to my toughest R2's.
Variety Attribution: Obverse-Date is 8 mm. and well centered. There is a vertical die line from stand to right side of inner curl of 2. A couple of small die defect lumps are usually visible about the center of the neck.
Reverse- 50 C. is 2 mm. Arrow to A is 1/2 mm. Right side of T left of left side of I. Vertical stripes are mostly solid, stripe 6 is entirely solid.
