This coin makes a great insert into a Type collection and is an affordable AU example for any set! The obverse of this coin has a pleasant chocolate peripheral toning, Lady Liberty is lighter than the peripheral and has some mint luster.

The reverse is very nice and well detailed from the shield lines to most of the feathers. This is a very nice example! The 1823 Half Dollar is a common date in the Capped Bust series thanks to a rather hefty mintage of nearly 1.7 million coins. This date is available in a full range of grades and can be found with relative ease. Variety specialists focus on the date, where three major variants are found: Broken 3, Patched 4, and Ugly 3 (plus the Normal 3).

On these varieties, the 3 of the date appears deformed because of a faulty punch and/or repairs made to it. In addition to the these major varieties, specialists have identified thirteen different die varieties, as well as some interesting die states.
