Ultimate #28 WB-33, Cracked Reverse, Choice Original, Newtown Collection The 1843 half dollars are notorious for die cracks and other defects, and this piece is no exception. The WB-33 obverse is identified by the 4 repunched to the north, but the real action is on the reverse. (ST)A(TES) reveals a small internal cud, while the lower right of the shield is heavily clashed. The fields of this piece reveal crusty charcoal and gray patina, while the lighter central devices are marked by silver at the high points. Strike is typical, with left claw joints blending together. This issue is a common date in the Seated half series, but the accessible price point allows for wide exploration of the numerous striking difficulties encountered in this era. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 (2015-2020) holder.
