Description

Important 1814 O-106a Half, AU50
Very Late Die State

1814 50C AU50 PCGS. O-106a, High R.4. The late die state continues the third use of the obverse die, and now more than three ear bars show, a result of a further clashed dies incident.
Extremely heavy clash marks are present on both sides, and they are especially prominent on the obverse. In fact, the clash marks are so heavy that parts of UNITED STATES can actually be read. Also visible are individual wing feathers in the obverse fields with most of the motto below the bust.
The obverse is sunken and the reverse shows all die cracks of State a.
The obverse weakness is more from strike than wear. Both sides have strong peripheral luster with considerable surviving mint frost. Golden-tan appears on the high points, with heather and blue-green toning along the borders. While this piece misses the Condition Census, it is just outside the top six of the late die state.
From The Donald R. Frederick Collection of Early U.S. Coinage: Bayside Part II.

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.
