1827 Sq. Base 2 -  O.122 R.5 PCGS OGH AU 55

Jerry Schertz consigned his nearly complete Capped Bust Half-Dollar die variety set to me in 1994.  Tim found this AU 1827 O.122 on my May 1994 Fixed Price List.  The coin remains at the low end of the Condition Census, tied with another similarly graded example.  Soft luster radiates beneath antique grey patina.  A toning spot under S1 is a modest interruption.  The worn obverse die is found on two R.4s and an R.5: O.121, 122 and 123.  A quick key for cherry pickers is the unusually wide space between S1 and the drapery.    Estimate: $2,500 to $3,500
