This was a delightful random lucky find - an 1824 Overton O-112 Capped Bust Half Dollar in a PCGS holder, an R4 variety. It has that lovely dark grey look that I prefer when it comes to Capped Bust coinage and fits in well with my other CBH's and CBQ's with similar appearance.

The holder has quite a few scratches - they are not on the coin - so I think I will have it re-holdered with the attribution as it was sent in by whomever owned it previously without requesting the attribution, not that I'm complaining

How would you grade this lovely old half dollar, and what do you think PCGS graded it?

beautiful circulated CBH without the dreaded "bearded lady" effect often seen on less worn coins.

You might be able to buff out the scratches on the holder yourself, with PlastX or a similar agent. It's done very well for me -- if not "perfect", it will at least be far less distracting.

Looks like everyone thought it should grade higher. CAC submission?
