The Finest Known 1814/3 Half, O-101a, MS66
1814/3 50C MS66 NGC. Ex Kaufman. O-101a, R.2. The 1814/3 half dollar boasts one of the strongest overdates in the entire Capped Bust series with the top of the 3 boldly visible just below the top of the 4. The late state, designated as O-101a, has clash marks and die cracks on both sides. The obverse is cracked through the base of the date, with a second crack beginning below the bust and curving up through every star on the left, across the cap, and back down through every star on the right. The encircling die crack is unusual, as it is actually a single die crack. Most peripheral die cracks are actually a series of cracks joining the various elements. The reverse has a crack from the border below the left wing tip, through or below all letters in UNITED and STA.
This Premium Gem is undoubtedly the finest known 1814/3 half dollar. It is the only MS66 example that NGC has certified, and the finest PCGS has examined grades just MS64. Stephen Herrman records three different MS65 NGC coins that have made recent appearances, including an example in our 2008 ANA Sale.
Fully lustrous grayish-gold surfaces with brilliant underlying mint frost. Splashes of bluish-green toning are found near the borders, increasing its already outstanding aesthetic appeal. A bold and well centered strike permits full borders and sharp design definition, including excellent hair details, complete stars, and strong feathers. A remarkable example that will capture the connoisseur's attention.
Ex: Dr. Juan XII Suros Collection (Superior, 2/1999), lot 175.
From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.

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.
