Beautiful MS66 1810 Half Dollar, O-106a

1810 50C MS66 NGC. Ex: Eliasberg. O-106a, R.3. Cream-gray, russet, and sea-green endow this lustrous and remarkably unabraded Premium Gem. Sharply struck aside from stars 4 and 7 and opposite at the wing tip and leaves near the rim.
The present die marriage is readily identified by a lengthy diagonal die line from the right shield corner. The reverse field near the scroll exhibits several sets of deep clash marks, but no clash marks are apparent on the obverse. O-106a is the "die state" with localized peripheral softness of strike. Parsley's standard reference suggests that "edge lettering machinery" "lodged in the die" to cause a shifting area of "flattening on the rim."
The edge is obscured by the holder, but in its April 1997 Eliasberg catalog appearance, the present piece was described as having an edge lettering error. DOLLAR and FIFTY overlap, creating DOILFLTAY. Census: 2 in 66, 0 finer (5/08).
Ex: George H. Earle Collection; Henry Chapman, 6/1912; John H. Clapp; Clapp Estate; Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr. Collection (Bowers and Merena, 4/1997), lot 1711.(Registry values: N1) (NGC ID# 24ET, PCGS# 6095)

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.
