Description

Minted from 1796-1839, the Bust Half Dollar was the largest coin that could be made easily on the early minting equipment and was the standard coin used in commerce. Many remain in good condition because they were stored in banks as backing for paper currency. Today, the coin is particularly fascinating to collectors due to its many errors. In an effort to save old dies, the coins were frequently minted with misspelled words that were subsequently corrected. A famous one states "FIFTY CENTS OR A DOLLAR." Minted from 90% pure silver/10% copper. Certificate of Authenticity included.
