1836 Capped Bust Half Dollar. Lettered Edge. O-123. Rarity-4. AU-58 (PCGS).
A find for the toning enthusiast, this gorgeous example exhibits vivid cobalt blue peripheral iridescence around otherwise reddish-gold surfaces. Sharply struck for the die marriage, this lustrous and smooth-looking coin has legitimate claim to a Mint State grade.
Provenance: From the Greenway Collection. Stack's paper envelope included.
1831 H10C PR62 ANACS. V-1, LM-6, R.8 as a proof. Heritage has auctioned two different proof 1831 half dimes over the past 15 years. Both are V-1, identified by a repunched star 3 and a repunched flag on the 5 in 5C. The other proof, certified as PR67 by NGC, appeared in our 2007 Houston Signature and 2014 January FUN Signature. The present specimen, housed in an old small-sized ANACS holder, is fully struck with noticeable field reflectivity. The peach-gold and forest-green toning contributes further to the eye appeal.

1884-S $1 AU58 NGC. Luster remains in the fields of this near-Mint 1884-S dollar, complementing smooth, problem-free surfaces. The strike is sharp and wear is trivial. Some reflectivity emerges when tilted beneath a light. Each side of this collector-grade 1884-S Morgan displays warm golden toning and has good eye appeal.(Registry values: P9, N491) (NGC ID# 254P, PCGS# 7156)
