1818 O.115 R5 Capped Bust Half Dollar NGC XF40, Early Die State

An original, medium golden-gray example of this very tough die variety and even tougher die state. Here, the primary obverse crack is it's infancy...and is seen only as a super-thin crack just to the right of the final 8, and it only extends the height of that numeral, not extending to the lower curl. The earliest die state I can recall seeing, though I've heard rumors of a true prime, I've never seen it, nor do I have any reliable info about it. This coin is lovely and original, though there is an old rim bump on the reverse as seen. Any 18-115 regardless of die state, is really tough in original XF or better.
