1831 50C O-101, R.2, VF35 NGC. Overton-101 shows an extension of the middle stripe in gule 2 down toward the fletchings. The E and P in the motto are filled at the top. This Choice VF Capped Bust half dollar has undoubtedly seen considerable circulation, but much detail remains on Liberty's curls, and the eagle's feathers and talons. The obverse features strong border elements, while the reverse legends are slightly drawn to moderately soft rims. An even layer of olive-gray patina covers each side. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
