The Finest Existing 1827/6 O-102 Half, MS67
Ex: Earle, Clapp, Eliasberg
1827/6 50C MS67 NGC. Ex: Eliasberg/Kaufman. O-102, R.1. The bottom right side of the former 6 curves up to the right from the bottom of the 7. The overdated obverse die was used with three different reverse dies, and O-102 has the obverse stars lightly drawn to the edge. Faint "ear bar" clash marks are evident below the ear, but no other die defects are visible on the obverse. The reverse also has light clash marks but no other defects.
The 1827/6 O-102 is the most plentiful of the three overdate varieties, and the only one that can sometimes be found in Gem quality. This piece from the George Earle, John Clapp, and Louis Eliasberg Collections, is the only 1827/6 overdate that has been certified as a Superb Gem MS67. Incredibly, NGC has only graded one other 1827 half dollar in MS67, an example of the O-120a variety that will be offered just a few lots after this piece! For the connoisseur who desires the finest possible 1827 half dollar, the present sale presents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
This satiny and lustrous Superb Gem is boldly detailed with excellent centering, better than usually seen. Lovely golden-brown on the obverse and lighter silver on the reverse, with outstanding iridescent accents on both sides. Today, this piece appears exactly as it did in the 1997 Eliasberg sale, and probably looks much the same as it did way back in 1912 when the George Earle Collection was sold.
Ex: George H. Earle (Henry Chapman, 6/1912); John H. Clapp; Clapp Estate (1942); Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr.; Eliasberg Estate (Bowers and Merena, 4/1997), lot 1827.
From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.

The Draped Bust Half Dollars of 1796-1797 by Jon Amato

The Draped Bust Half Dollars of 1796-1797 by Jon Amato is the culmination of more than 10 years of research into the Draped Bust Small Eagle half dollar series, one of the most coveted type coins in American numismatics and one about which remarkably little has been written.

This work will be the premier reference for 1796-1797 half dollars for years to come. Institutions having an extensive numismatic library or coin cabinet will find it a valuable complement to their holdings, and catalogers charged with writing up specimens for auction can now have an indispensable source of background and pedigree information. Likewise, coin dealers seeking to purchase one or more '96 or '97 half dollars for a client or for inventory, and collectors who own, have owned, or desire to own one will want this important reference work for their libraries.
