Description

Wonderfully Patinated Condition Census
1814/3 Half, O-101a, MS65

1814/3 50C MS65 NGC. O-101a, R.2. This is a popular overdate variety among early Bust halves, one in which the underlying 3 in the date, as here, is clear even in late states of the obverse die. The present piece shows considerable die wear, with most of the lower obverse stars drawn toward the rims. The late-state crack through the date digits that characterizes O-101a is bold. On the reverse, that die appears close to shattering. The die crack running from near the left wing tip through UNITED and to the first A breaks into two pieces at that point, presaging worse to come. Both sides show myriad die cracks and clashes.
This wonderful Gem offers marvelous patina in shades of lilac and lavender on both sides, complementing bold luster and a sharp strike. In MS65 this piece (undesignated for the late die state) is one of three 1814/3 examples so graded at NGC, and there is a single coin finer (7/08). There is also an O-101a graded MS66 at that service. At any rate, this piece appears to be solidly in the Condition Census.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 24F7, PCGS# 6106)

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.
