    First, here's an 1830 Bust half, graded by PCGS.


    GTG in the poll and post your opinion along with the Overton variety.
    If you have no clue about varieties, please don't ;-)
    If you select a details grade, please specify why you think it's a problem coin.

    I'll let the poll open for 7 days.. have fun!

    Nice and crusty looking. I guessed AU-50. No opinion on variety as yet, as my Overton book is at home and I am not. :)

    I voted AU-53...the "Small 0" variety.
    Since others have let the cat out of the bag I will say Overton 101.

    I went with AU 55

    Looks very nice ...maybe an eye appeal bump from 53, but I wouldn't mind it in this case.

    I know the answer, too.
    But one thing is for sure.....the toning is a bummer...

    My guess is AU50 and I think see some luster peeking through. Nice coin!

    Why do you say that? I think it is quite attractive.

    I voted AU-53. That luster is gorgeous.

    5 of you voted XF45 - too low
    6 of you voted AU50 - correct as per PCGS
    9 of you voted AU53 - too high, but I’d agree
    6 of you voted AU55 - too high, but it shows that it’s very good for the grade assigned

    And yes, it’s the O-101 variety, which is not really hard to find out.

    I may cross it over to NGC soon :)
