$0.50 1829 O-109a Capped Bust Half Dollar 50c - XF / AU

Here is a better O-109a variety of the 1829 Capped Bust Half Dollar.  The well-centered date and late stage die breaks above "UNITED S" and "S OF AM" make the coin easily recognizable.

With typically soft central details, good luster, no singularly distracting marks and some blue and amber color in the peripheries, this coin is a good representative from a rather limited population. 

An R4+ coin, this variety in AU53 recently sold in a Sheridan Downey sale for $1210.  This coin is priced significantly lower to sell into your collection.
