Why buy this Capped Bust 1832 Silver Half Dollar Small Letters?

This 1832 Capped Bust Silver Half Dollar is among a handful of coins that can truly be called 'beloved' by large numbers of collectors. The coin was issued near the end of the iconic series. Part of a mintage of 4,797,000 pieces, it was struck at the Philadelphia Mint from 13.48 g of .892 silver and has a lettered edge.

Classic Liberty Design by John Reich

John Reich designed both faces of the Draped Bust half dollar, which is sometimes referred to as the "bust half." On the obverse is a left-side portrait of Liberty wearing a Phrygian cap. The portrait goes down to her chest and includes an uncovered portion of her breast. Thirteen stars join the date, "1832," on the rim.

An eagle spreads its wings to the side while guarding a union shield on the reverse. It holds arrows, symbols of military preparedness, and an olive branch, a symbol of peace, in its talons. A ribbon that bears the phrase "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one) spreads out above its head. Rim inscriptions read, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "50 C," the coin's face value.

Well Preserved AU50

This coin received an Almost Uncirculated 50 grade from the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). That means that almost none of the design has any wear, and the few high points that do have only traces of it.
