Silver-gray with a dusting of peripheral gold on both sides over lustre. The strike is typically soft on the stars and curls of Liberty, and the eagle's claws and branch lack the finer definition. The surfaces show minor hairlines and handling marks, all microscopic in nature. This is the only Half Dollar obverse die used in 1827 that employed the Curled Base on the 2. Another attractive collector coin.

Ex George F. Scanlon Collection (Stack's, October 1973, lot 1395); Maurice Bauman Collection (Stack's, December 1966, lot 56).
