This 1831 Bust Half Dollar has been professionally graded and is certified as AU58 (almost uncirculated). The coin is encapsulated in the grading service's tamper proof holder. The normal numerical score for AU coins is 50, and 60 is considered uncirculated, so this coin grades just a hair below uncirculated. This coin is part of an estate of rare coins we recently purchased, and we are able to pass along the savings to our customers. The 1831 Bust Half Dollar currently books for $350.00 in typical AU50 grade, and $1,050 in MS60 uncirculated, so we are selling this premium AU coin for the same price as a typical lower graded one. The Bust Half Dollar was made from 1807-1838. A high grade silver coin from the early days of our country will occupy a prized spot in any coin collection. We have only one of these very rare coins available, so please don't order more than one. Promotions and discounts offered on the site form time to time do not apply to this item.
