Impressive 1809 O-106 Half Dollar, MS66

1809 50C Normal Edge MS66 NGC. Ex: Kaufman. O-106, R.3. This piece is remarkable for its nearly perfect technical quality, and it is even more distinctive for its amazing aesthetic appeal. A few hair curls and feathers have slight weakness, but the overall design sharpness is much finer than usual for the variety or for the date. The surfaces have soft, frosty luster beneath an amazing display of medium gold and ivory at the centers, surrounded by intense cobalt-blue, sea-green, and violet toning closer to the borders.
In the spring 2009 revision of Auction & Mail Bid Prices Realized for Bust Half Dollars, Stephen Herrman calls the Eliasberg specimen the finest known of the variety. However, the Eliasberg coin was only graded MS65 by NGC, and the present specimen is certified as MS66 by the same service. We consider this example to be the finest known 1809 O-106 half dollar. Census: 2 in 66, 0 finer (3/09), for all 1809 varieties.
From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.(Registry values: N1) (NGC ID# 24ES, PCGS# 6092)

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.
