GR-9
Choice $550 Strictly Original and Choce, Natural Gun Metal Gray Patina, Bisecting Reverse Die Crack, Residual Luster.. How I wish that all early Capped Bust and Liberty Seated coinage could sport the flawless natural toning seen on this choice 1838 Reeded Edge half. If a fan of strict originality and natural gray coloring, this piece is for you! Surfaces are completely unabraded. This offering is the GR-9 die pairing with a late die state reverse. A heavily vertical die crack bisects the reverse from HAF(F D)OL up through the eagle's neck. A second die crack from STA(T)ES meets the vertical die crack at the beak and upper neck. A small cud has formed on top of the fourth group of vertical shield lines. Very cool! Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder and worthy of special consideration by Capped Bust and die variety collectors.
