What This Coin Looks Like (Obverse, Reverse, Mint Mark Location, Special Features, etc.):
1817 Single Leaf Capped Bust Half Dollar
Another major variety is the 1817 Capped Bust Half Dollar with a single leaf on the branch under the eagle's wing on the reverse of the coin. Typically there are two leaves (double leaf) but this variety only has a single leaf. This resulted due to lapped dies in which the US Mint used in an attempt to correct die clashing issues. The difference between the 1817 Single Leaf vs Double Leaf is depicted above in the example comparison image.
