This is a 1803 DRAPED BUST HALF DOLLAR, CHOICE AU DETAILS, ORIGINAL PATINA & GREAT LOOKING! Not every coin in the hobby is destined for a third party holder. There are plenty of coins, this one included, that have great aesthetic appeal, but also have an issue which precludes grading. At first glance, this piece appears original CHOICE AU, but has evidence of extremely minor tooling (the interiors of several star radials have been expertly reengraved). This is so minor, that it is a very easy one to miss! The surfaces are 100% original w/ “skin” consistent with a mid-range AU and strong underlying luster. High grade and attractive, this one will cost you just a small fraction of “the real thing”. Our commitment is to provide you with quality coins and collectibles at the best possible prices. This piece is no exception. Please note, the coin and collectibles markets do fluctuate, and prices occasionally will change. In this rare circumstance, we will contact you first to verify your order.
