    1805 50C O-104, T-10, Low R.5, VG10 PCGS Host Coin. SMITH & GRANT Counterstamp, Brunk S-655, Rulau-E KY-30. High R.7, XF Counterstamp. Tompkins Die State 1/1. The O-104 Draped Bust half dollar is scarce in its own right -- an R.5 variety in the early die state. This example shows the SMITH & GRANT counterstamp as a well-made ribbonlike depression with raised letters, done in the style of a silversmith. Richard Ewing Smith and William Grant were Louisville, Kentucky silversmiths and jewelers. Their partnership was short lived, lasting from 1827 to 1831, after which Smith continued the business. It is possible this half dollar was counterstamped when Smith was the sole proprietor of the business.
