Description

1830 Capped Bust Half Dollar. O-113. Rarity-2. Small 0. MS-63 (PCGS).

An elegantly toned coin that displays good luster and high eye appeal. The colors blend russet-gold with rich blue and teal scattered over the surfaces, with much of the toning serving to accent the devices, some deep in the crevices of the design. The obverse is boldly struck with each of the stars showing full radial lines and Liberty's curls are well defined. On the reverse the strike is generally sharp although a trifle blunt on some of the feather tips of the left wing of the eagle. No distracting marks are present in the fields or on the devices, and this example is certainly solid for the grade assigned by PCGS. Probably tied with a few others at the low end of the Condition Census for this die variety and a prize for the Capped Bust half dollar specialist.

PCGS#: 6156
