Hi guys,
I'm new here, and I'm a US coin collector living in the Netherlands. I particularly collect half dollars, and got this Capped Bust 1834 in my collection.

Now, what you need to know is, it's very hard to obtain US coins here, so if I can get my hands on anything, I will try to get it. I have some nice commemoratives as well, a lot coming from the USA through Ebay(should anyone like to help me out on the rest of my halves, I'd be grateful!).

How about this one, anyone care to take a look if it's genuine, and if so, which grade should it be about? It weighs 13.54 grams.

Thanks in advance and regards!

A big USA fan!

Looks like a genuine large date, small letters. Hard to tell if it's been cleaned in the past, but it looks like a solid VF-35, possibly even XF.

Weight is correct, Large Date style looks correct. Likely cleaned. Awaiting Grape's reply.

It looks alright to me. Cleaned but genuine. Nice pickup!

Looks like it may be an O-107, definitely looks cleaned.

It does look odd to me as well, and I can't quite put my finger on what.

Seeing the reputation of the seller, I couldn't imagine that it was a fake though... I wonder what an example like this would cost in the US, any ideas?

Also curious to hear the viewpoint from Grapecollects..
