1812 Capped Bust Half Dollar. 2 over 1. Large 8. PCGS graded VF-30. Very rare. A total of 1,628,059 minted in 1812. Years ago, collectors of this series used to instruct newcomers to "Look for the tougher 1812/1 overdates - if yours has a Large 8 in the date, you've got a real rarity!" Well, here, indeed, is THE great rarity for 1812, a splendid Very Fine 30 example displaying variegated "old silver" gray and steel patina over both surfaces. (The finest 1812/1 Large 8 example graded by PCGS is a single AU-50.) (PCGS # 6102) .
Estimated Value $6,000 - 7,500.

 
Realized $9,200
