This stunning 1822 Capped Bust Silver half dollar,
Overton-105, is among my favorite coins in the August sale for a few reasons.
The provenance of the coin dates back to 1911 and includes the D. Brent Pogue
Collection, a Wayte Raymond sale, and the Iron Eagle Collection. Such names and
collections affirm that this coin is of the highest quality and belongs in an
impressive collection. Another reason that this coin would rank among my
favorite is the combination of the grade and the color. To find a Capped Bust half
dollar graded MS-66, combined with such beautiful, even toning is rare.
Finally, the quality and depth of the strike is superb, creating a fine
distinction between the fields and the bust. Every part of this coin stands
out. To view more images of this coin, or to read more about it, find it as Lot
