Here's my latest purchase: A nice 1929 Capped Bust Half. A bit hard to see in hand (due to the slab) is the edge lettering. It reads"FIFTY CENTS OR HALF A DOLLAR" and there is a Star between "Dollar" and "Fifty". And you thought the recessed edge lettering on modern Dollars was a new idea. Not so. The Capped Bust Half Dollar was designed by John Reich, a German immigrant who became a Mint engraver from 1807-1817.
