Stack's Bowers Auction The August 2013 Chicago ANA World's Fair of Money Jul-2013 1839 Capped Bust Half Dollar. Reeded Edge. HALF DOL. GR-7. Rarity-1. MS-62 (NGC). GR-7, R.1. The mint frost is remarkably bright and vibrant for this date, examples of which often have a rather lackluster appearance, even in the Mint State classifications. There is a very light overlay of golden-gray and pink patina on both sides. Sharply struck. There are merely a few modest ticks and scuffs, accounting for this certified grade. This date marks the final year of the Capped Bust half dollar motif, and it is a four-year only variety with a reeded edge. The offered example is a two-year only type with the denomination noted as HALF DOL., and has a Large Letters reverse. It has excellent eye appeal and is ideal for type. PCGS# 6179.
