This Capped Bust half dollar with lettered edge will add great numismatic and historical prestige to your collection! It was struck in 89.24% fine silver over 200 years ago at the first U.S. Mint in Philadelphia. Working dies were prepared individually with the date, stars and lettering punched in by hand. Each coin was then struck on a man-powered screw press. Here, the engraver first punched a 2, discovered his mistake, then repunched a 5 over the 2. Beautiful, lightly circulated with original mint luster, this error variety is one you’ll be proud to own.
