    I'll say VF 35. These are often flatly struck which always challenges me.

    I'm at 35 also. Could possibly go 40 due to strike irregularities that tend to appear as wear. Nice coin.

    Well aren't we all over the board? Guesses are as low as 20 and as high as 45. That's quite a spread.

    Nice early half dollar. The 1807 Capped bust halves are known for being weakly struck, however this coin is nowhere close to XF45. I’d grade it VF30 but could agree with VF35. I believe it’s the common O-112 variety.

  20. VF-20. The amount of wear on the eagle's feathers brings it down. The obv might even be VF-30/35, nowhere near a 45 though.
