If there is a collector anywhere with an 1827 half-dollar finer than this -- curlicue two, and all -- post it now, or forever hold your piece.  On the French grading scale, this is a Fleur de Coin, a bona-fide FDC.  I dare anyone to challenge by grade and class one of the finest pieces the OP has ever sprung upon us without advance notice.  I pronounce this the last word in halves. Exceptional iridescent peripheral toning!  Sharp devices with prominent high point details. The fields are smooth and shine with brilliance!  Unupgradeable!  Someone hand me a gold sticker.  This IS The Last Word!

This is a fine specimen!  And it's got a less assertive curlicue 2 -- but it's there!  Both minted in the same place? They both share a muted U in UNUM.  Shared DNA.  Have either of you thought of encapsulation?  These coins are nearly 200 years old! NICE SHOW, GUYS!
