Capped Bust 50C 1826 Capped Bust 50C 1826
Choice SOLD
New March 27! Near-Gem, Burrowing Owl Collection. Steely luster with thick gray-orange skin covers the surfaces of this richly toned piece. High points of Liberty are more lightly patinated, with traces of fire red and gold in the recessed areas of the central device. The reverse shading is deeper, with scattered hints of burning orange, evoking the remaining embers of a campfire. The CAC population is 335 pieces, which represents less than one in ten thousand pieces of the entire issue - Bust halves were well used in commerce, and the number of original survivors is minimal. O-110, with 8 recut in the upper loop, and 50 C. more widely spaced. Housed in a PCGS Gen 6.0 (2015-2020) holder with CAC approval. December 1969
