1819/8 O.103a R4 Large 9 Capped Bust Half Dollar PCGS VF30 (CAC)
CAC approved. A lovely example of this better die variety. This is an early state of the "a" model, with only the first die crack visible, and it only extends a bit into the eagle's right (facing) wing. This reverse die fell apart rather quickly, with other significant die cracks appearing and all progressing, and as such, this marriage is avidly collected by die state. I had 7 distinct die states in my collection back in the day! This was always one of my favorite marriages.
