I recently picked up this half. It has a scratch to the left of the bust on the obverse, but I still thought it was a beautiful coin. I am excited to own my first half of this series. Thanks for the help!

The coin grades G6. It is pretty cool that your first bust half happens to be an overdate. This is the 1829/7 overdate. The ovedate can be easily seen by enlarging the last digit of the date. Congrats on your new bust half acquisition.

Good eye NS! Congrats on your first. I am rather partial to bust halves. As a type coin they can be had in EF-40 at a fairly low price (~$150) making them accessible to most collectors.

I'll say G-04 straight, choice for grade.

I don't think the scratch in the field is enough to give it a details grade. If it was a VF or XF coin, then that's a different story. Nice coin!

G04. Nice overdate! It's actually a 29 over 27. You can see the base of the 2 under the 2, in addition to the base of the 7 under the 9. O-101 R1.
Knowledge is the key to collector success!
