1830 Capped Bust Half Dollar. O-120. Rarity-1. Large 0. MS-63 (PCGS).

Original antique-gold patina adorns both sides, the color deepening in shade toward the rims. This satiny example is a bit unevenly struck, but the only mentionable lack of detail is confined to the obverse stars, the reverse olive branch and the eagle's left (facing) talon. Scattered abrasions are more moderate in size, yet minimal in number.
