Owner's Comments

O.104 R4+. "This half dollar is so much more than a Premium Gem. It has amazing eye appeal with green, rose, and iridescent toning on the obverse, and light gold on the reverse. The strike is bold and well-centered, and the surfaces are highly lustrous and pristine. An amazing example, but also an extremely important offering. We had the privilege to offer an MS67 example of O-104 in our 2009 CSNS sale, and the present specimen is the second finest known example. The census quickly drops to MS65, MS64, and MS63. Population: 6 in 66, 0 finer (9/12)," per Heritage cataloger. Obtained from Heritage Galleries' Auction Auction #1175 on October 12, 2012. Upgraded from PCGS MS66 to PCGS MS66+ on 10/29/2013: as of this date, this coin is the finest known 1825 Capped Bust Half Dollar ever graded by PCGS (five in MS66, one in MS66+).
