||HALF DOLLARS - CAPPED BUST, LETTERED EDGE
||NGC MS 64
O.110 R2. Large Letters reverse. "The sole die pairing of the 1829 Large Letters variety, and thus receives a separate Guide Book listing. Although available in VF, O-110 is rare in Mint State. The Autumn 2011 Stephen J. Herrman auction records data is topped by a single MS65 and a solitary MS64. Thus, the present coin likely belongs within the O-110 Condition Census. It is lustrous and well struck with rich to deep dove-gray, gunmetal-blue, and lilac patina. A loupe reveals inconspicuous abrasions on the portrait and left obverse field," per cataloger. Obtained from Heritage Auction #1166 on 1/4/2012, Lot 3514.
