1821 -  O.102 R.2 PCGS AU 50 CAC


Though weakly struck in the centers, PCGS and CAC found the originality of the coin irresistible.  Soft luster accords with the grade.  Gentle sunset colors cloak the smooth surfaces.  Trot out this coin whenever someone asks for an example of an original bust half-dollar.  Tim plucked it from a dealer’s case during the January 2012 FUN Show.  

Estimate:  $550 to $700
