Description

Elusive Overdate Variety 1812/1 Bust Half, O-101a, R.5.

1812/1 50C Large 8 VF30 NGC. O-101a, R.5. One of the more elusive overdate varieties in the series of Bust half dollars, the '12/11 Large 8 was not even included in Overton's first edition. The reverse on this variety is shared with the more commonly seen Small 8 overdate, and is easily attributed by the boldly recut base of the N. The rich mauve-gray surfaces show much lighter color on the devices. The lower obverse has heavy die cracks, as struck. The surfaces are very pleasing for the grade.
Ex: Roland Willasch (5/12/1985). Envelope Included.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 24EX, PCGS# 6102)

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.
