1824 50C VF30 Certification #37673835, PCGS #6137

Expert Comments

Ron Guth

1824 Half Dollars are found with a "normal" date and different overdates (1824/1, 1824/4, and 1924 over various overdates). As a date, the 1824 Half Dollar is relatively common, with over 1,300 graded by PCGS alone (as of June 2011).  The "normal" date is the most common of the 1824 varieties -- by far -- with over 900 graded by PCGS in all grades.  In Mint State, the 1824 "normal" date is available in a variety of grades, most usually MS-64.  As expected, Gems are quite rare.  The finest example certified by PCGS is an amazing MS-68, one of only two Capped Bust, Lettered Edge Half Dollars to have received that grade at PCGS since the company's inception in 1986 (that beauty is illustrated above)!
