Couldn't pass this lovely little gem up, especially when I matched it with a scarcer variety, Overton O-113a.

Check out that reverse die crack starting under the C in 50 C and running left to the you in UNITED! Another one can be seen over TES in STATES.

I really like the tone & surfaces on this one, and so did CAC, it seems; what do you think PCGS graded it?

The obverse seems VF-30 while the reverse appears VF-20, so I'll say a net VF-25. Great pick-up!

Surprised this one didn't get more input. No moxking, even. But thanks to those of you who did reply, because you almost all nailed it.

Try shorter page titles. It works for me when I post a coin for grading.

After a long day of work, when I skim through the grading listings, sometimes my eyes will glaze right over a listing if the title looks like a full sentence.

If I would have seen '1826 capped bust half for grading', I would've responded.

Nice coin and congrats on the pickup!

I am not as familiar with this series re: strike issues, ad before I saw the reveal I was guessing VF30, so this has been informative and educational as well as eye candy :)

Tons of strike issues in this series. You almost need the attribution book when you grade them to see what issues to expect for that variety. It very likely did get squeezed a bit for the funky verse strike.

Beautiful coin regardless

Yes, this series is known for striking strike issues. The reverse can look VF-35 and the obverse AU-55 in some cases. So when grading these you have to take into account that many of them are weakly struck on one side or both sides.

I agree with Baseball, it's a beautiful coin with original surfaces.
