Ron Guth:

The 1881/0 Half Eagle shows a clear undertype of a zero below the final 1 if the date, especially to the right side of the date (see attribution image above). The undertype is strong enough that it can be seen even on circulated coins from Very Fine and up.

PCGS has certified almost 100 examples of this variety, about half of which are circulated and half of which are Mint State. The PCGS CoinFacts Condition Census includes eight MS-63s and 2 MS-64s.
