1808/7 Capped Bust Half Dollar. O-101. Rarity-1. MS-62 (PCGS).A deeply original example of this overdate painted in rich bands of iridescence on each side. The centers display a vibrant golden glow that deepens to crimson and indigo at the borders. Considerable luster remains in the protected regions, delivering an attractive and pearlescent complexion under a light source. The dies have failed dramatically, rendering a network of thin cracks to connect the peripheral devices on each side. Even so, the design elements are uniformly sharp and the surfaces remain free from notable abrasions. A choice and desirable piece.PCGS Population: 6; 23 finer.Ex Scotsmans sale of the Quantum Collection, November 2017, lot 848.
