Bust Halves
We recently acquired a wonderfully toned 1806 O-114, plus a nice 1807 Capped Bust in PCGS F-15 and an 1831 in PCGS AU-55.  We also have an 1805/4 O-102 in PCGS VF-20, an 1806 O-105 in PCGS F-12, an 1812 in PCGS AU-53 with nice toning, an 181.7 in PCGS AU-55, a WOW 1823 O-103 in PCGS MS-64 that is fully prooflike on both sides, an 1823 Broken 3 in PCGS AU-53, an 1828 in PCGS AU-55 with nice toning, an 1836 in PCGS XF-40 CAC with nice toning, an 1836/1336 in PCGS XF-45, and an 1837 in PCGS AU-58.  We also have an 1806/5 O-104 prime in F-12, a gorgeous 1813 O-108 in PCGS AU-50, and an 1830 O-108 in PCGS AU-53!  We have just obtained some new TrueView photos of some of our wonderfully toned Bust halves - - check them out!   We like Early and Bust halves that are R-4 and better varieties, and/or have nice eye appeal.  We would like to purchase Good thru Fine 1815/2 halves.

We also have the new book Early U. S. Half Dollars 1794 - 1807 by Steve Tompkins.  See our book page for more info and to order the book with free shipping.
1805/4 O-102 R-3 PCGS VF-20
A nice example of a scarce overdate. 1805/4 is represented by three Overton numbers, 101 is the most common, 102 is scarce, and 103 is rare.
Price: $1,675

1813 Half O-108 R2 PCGS AU-50 great toning
Phenomenally gorgeous toning on this coin. It's relatively easy to find a toned Bust half in the late 1820's or the 1830's, but much more difficult to find one from the early 1810's. Definitely a one-of-a-kind coin for the advanced collector. Had a CAC sticker until I sent it in for TrueView. New TrueView photo from PCGS. Was $3,000.

1823 Half PCGS MS-64, fully prooflike on both sides, a true "WOW" coin
I acquired this coin at ANA, and a lot of people wanted to see it. In fact, famous Capped Bust half collector Dale Friend stopped by to see it, and he liked the coin a lot! The coin is fully prooflike on both sides, which makes taking pictures quite difficult, but I believe the pics are very close to how the coin looks in hand. O-103, R2. We have posted this coin at our best price. Was $15,000.
