Description: 1832 Capped Bust Lettered Edge Half Dollar Coin. Liberty now faces left, wearing a cap secured at the base with a ribbon or band inscribed LIBERTY, with tresses falling to her shoulder. Her low neckline is draped in a cloth or a gown and is secured by a brooch on her shoulder. Seven stars are to the left and six are to the right. The date is below. The reverse depicts an eagle perched on an olive branch and holding three arrows, with E PLURIBUS UNUM above on a scroll and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA 50C surrounding. The edge displayed the lettering FIFTY CENTS OR HALF A DOLLAR. The Half Dollar was produced since the very first days of the US Mint’s existence and was a very popular coin amongst US citizens. The first version of the Half Dollar was known as the Bust Half Dollar and was introduced in 1794. Produced up until the late 1830s, this version of the Half Dollar stayed in circulation for an extended period of time. Thanks to these coin’s extreme age, they are difficult to find in good condition. By the same token, these coins are also quite expensive even though they may not be in the best shape. As time moves forward, Bust Half Dollars are going to grow increasingly difficult to acquire simply because they will be found in fewer and fewer quantities. These coins are great pieces of American history in that they were some of the first to have ever been minted and circulated in the newly found United States. Approx.
