Description:
MS66 1811 O-109 Half Dollar, Likely Finest Certified
1811 50C Small 8 MS66 NGC. O-109, R.2. An uncommonly fine example of this generally available variety, instantly recognizable upon examining the reverse, which is biplanar due to the heavy die crack from the eagle's left (facing) wing that runs through the scroll to the left of the P in PLURIBUS and the first S in STATES. Another radial die crack runs through the left-side olive leaves, the bottoms of UNIT, and the middle of ED, meeting the first crack at S1. yet another traverses S OF AMERICA and the arrowheads. There is a sharp defect in Liberty's upper lip. A tiny center obverse dot shows on Liberty's neck.
This charming Premium Gem boasts arm's-length enormous eye appeal, with hues of heather and lilac accenting the light dove-gray patina. Gorgeous luster radiates from beneath the pleasing ensemble, and the strike is well executed, although the dies are lightly eroded on each side. According to a recent edition of Auction & Mail Bid Prices Realized for Bust Half Dollars, this piece is likely close to the top of the certified Condition Census for the variety, although we cannot ascertain whether it is the absolute finest. An appealing and elegant coin. (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.
