1830 Capped Bust Half Dollar. Small 0. . Overton-115, R-2. PCGS graded MS-67. Old green holder. Well struck with lovely shades of gold, green and blue toning on both sides. Totally original and spectacular! Probably the finest known 1830 Capped Bust half dollar and if not, clearly the finest known for Overton-115. Pop 1; the finest graded at PCGS. (PCGS # 6156) .

Total minted in 1830, 4,764,800, with 23 die varieties registered. Overton-115 is noted for having die defect lines below and around the end of Liberty's bust (diagnostic of Obverse 8). On the reverse 50C is well struck and just slightly high. The 5 has an open loop and a short straight V shaped top. Left sides of T-I in line. Stripes and crossbars are sharply struck and the latter slant upward to the right. Since the Condition Census (64,63,63,60,60) doesn't include this specimen, it clearly stands in front of the rest.
Estimated Value $30,000 - 40,000.

Realized $37,950
