Capped Bust Hal Dollar - Lettered Edge

| JimmyD

Capped bust halves are a study in variety. The lettered edge variety especially piques my interest; I remember my wonder when finding out that they actually included the inscription “Fifty Cents Or Half a Dollar” on this coin (and others, of course). That’s one way to keep the unscrupulous from shaving the edges for precious metal... and also a great way to impart some monetary history.
