Item:143514912780Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE 1814 Capped Bust Half Dollar, Extremely Fine, certified ANACS EF-40 in an old mini slab. Overton-102a. A fascinating example of the attempts at the early U. S. Mint to keep dies in production. This variety is noted for significant damage to the Reverse die, which normally would have caused it to be condemned for service. The Reverse suffered a "sunk die" which caused a bulge to form at the juncture of the Eagle's left (facing) wing weakening detail. Overton mentions that all specimens show at least some die clashing, the most obvious being the transfer of the word "LIBERTY" found on her headband, appearing below the Eagle's right (facing) wing. In this case, the clashing is extremely significant, with a full obvious doubled LIBERTY and doubled (possibly tripled) clashes of other portions of the Obverse design appearing elsewhere. The Reverse die is also rotated about 10-15 degrees to the West, not surprising given the pounding it took. On top of that, the 1814 date itself is difficult to find. While the Overton variety is shown to carry no premium in the PCGS Price Guide (as an R-3, most such do not), an equivalent example in a PCGS/CAC VF-35 sold not too long ago for $705 at auction. This present example is in an early ANACS "mini" slab, and it is my opinion that if submitted today it is likely to certify as VF-35 - it is offered as such. Given the extreme nature of the clashing, I believe that it has an equivalent value to a PCGS VF-35 coin. Should you get an EF-40 grade, it would easily be worth that or more, as the current Pop is one coin in 40.
