Vivid MS66 1811 Half Dollar, O-108a

1811 50C Small 8 MS66 NGC. O-108a, R.2. This appears to be a particularly late die state, as significant die clashing is visible on the reverse near the eagle's head, neck, and right (facing) wing. The coin is exceptionally lustrous beneath vivid original toning ranging from a golden tan in the centers to bands of bronze, burgundy, gold, lime green, and cobalt blue as one approaches the sides. The strike is decent, with a bit of weakness visible on the first three stars and left olive leaves. The few surface markings do not impede the overall visual effect. The Parsley reference lists the condition census for O-108 as (67,65,65,63,63) with no separate citation for O-108a. As an MS66 this coin would fit comfortably within this grouping. NGC (11/06) reports a census of 12 1811 halves in 66, 3 finer, encompassing all varieties, with none of these attributed to date as either O-108 or O-108a. (NGC ID# 24EU, PCGS# 6097)

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.
