Several varieties of 1828 Capped Bust half dollars exist, due to varying style and size of both numbers and lettering that appear on the coin. The coin offered here has a Square Base 2, meaning the horizontal base of the 2 in the date is straight, versus curved. The date also features Large 8s, in that the two 8s are bigger in size than the 1 and the 2. The historic 1828 half dollar was struck in 89.24% silver at the Philadelphia Mint over 175 years ago.
