The 1833 Capped Bust Half Dollar can be a valuable coin, depending on its specific details like condition and variety. Here's a breakdown of the factors affecting its value:


  • Similar to other coins, the condition of your 1833 Capped Bust Half Dollar is a major determinant of its value. Professional grading services (PCGS, NGC) assign a grade (usually on a 70-point scale) based on the coin's preservation. Higher grades translate to higher values.

  • Here's a general range for 1833 Capped Bust Half Dollars according to NGC Price Guide (June 2024):

    • Circulated Grades (AG-VG): $70 - $940
    • Extremely Fine (XF): $ Upwards of $2,150
    • Uncirculated Grades (MS): $51 - $45,500 (depending on the specific MS grade)


There are three main varieties of the 1833 Capped Bust Half Dollar to be aware of:

  • O-110: This is the most common variety, with "O-110" notations used by numismatic references to distinguish it from others.
  • O-110a: This variety is slightly less common than O-110 and can hold a premium value.
  • O-111: This is the rarest variety of the three and can be significantly more valuable than the other two.

Other Factors:

  • Mintmark: All 1833 Capped Bust Half Dollars were minted in Philadelphia and won't have a mintmark.
  • Luster: Mint shine remaining on the surface can enhance value, especially for higher grades.
  • Toning: Natural toning can add aesthetic appeal and value, but excessively dark or unattractive toning can detract.


  • To determine the exact value of your 1833 Capped Bust Half Dollar, consider getting it professionally graded by a service like PCGS or NGC. This will identify the variety, assign an accurate grade, and factor in other characteristics for a more precise value assessment.
  • Look for online auction results and dealer listings of graded 1833 Capped Bust Half Dollars with similar characteristics, including variety and condition, to understand current market prices.
