1838 50C Reeded Edge MS62 PCGS #6177

PCGS MS62 CAC. Stacks description: 1838 Capped Bust Half Dollar. Reeded Edge. HALF DOL. GR-11. Rarity-1. MS-62 (PCGS). CAC. Satiny surfaces are uncommonly smooth for the assigned grade. Lightly toned in a blend of pearl gray and pale gold, this handsome example also offers sharp to full striking detail for the central design elements. As one of the most common die marriages of the issue, the 1838 GR-11 is a popular type candidate for the collector seeking a single example of the brief Capped Bust, Reeded Edge half dollar design of 1838 to 1839. In an absolute sense, however, Mint State survivors of this type are scarce, especially from a market availability standpoint.

1839 50C Seated, No Drapery XF45 PCGS #6230

PCGS XF45. Heritage Auctions notes: 1839 50C No Drapery, WB-101, Die Pair 2, R.3, XF45 PCGS. This Choice XF example is one of four 1839 No Drapery die marriages, while the With Drapery variant adds another three varieties for the year. Golden-gray surfaces show light lines and tiny marks with magnification, but there are no individual marks of mentionable significance. Moderate wear on Liberty's portrait and some weakness at the reverse dentils are grade-consistent. Traces of mint luster remain in the sheltered areas. (NGC ID# 24GK, Variety PCGS# 572000, Base PCGS# 6230)

1853 50C Arrows and Rays MS62 PCGS #6275

PCGS MS62. Heritage Auctions Description: 1853 50C Arrows and Rays, WB-101, MS62 PCGS. The mintage for this single-year type was a substantial 3.5 million half dollars. The dies used to strike this MS62 survivor must have been at the end of their usable life, as both sides are heavily cracked and clashed. The centers are strong, while detail softens around the rims. Cobalt-blue and reddish-violet toning encircles much of the obverse, leaving the rest of this coin brilliant. (NGC ID# 24JJ, Variety PCGS# 572085, Base PCGS# 6275)
