Capped Bust Half Dollar Attribution Guide
Obverse: Star 1 points between dentils. Stars 6 & 7, and stars 12 & 13, are too close. The “8” punch was accidentally sunk way too low and too far right, showing coming out of the dentil under the right half of “8”. This specimen is so heavily toned that it is difficult to picture. It was eventually lapped away. (Obverse is shared with O-137.)
Reverse: Left outline of shield is three separate lines. Several stripe lines extend too far upwards, and lines of stripe 6 extend too far downward. “50 C” is low. Arrowheads are separated, and the upper one is close to “A”. “U” and “N” nearly touch at top. “I” centered under right side of “T”.
