Choice About Uncirculated 1815/2 Half Dollar

1815/2 50C AU58 PCGS. O-101, R.3. A borderline Uncirculated specimen that represents a later die state for this well known key Capped Bust issue. The surfaces are lightly toned at the borders, and evidence of circulation is extremely minimal, making it easy to locate the numerous clash marks in both the obverse and reverse fields, as well as within the eagle's shield. The scarcity of the 1815 Half in lower grades is certainly no match for its popularity, but pieces in Choice AU and Uncirculated grades are legitimately elusive. Population: 12 in 58, 5 finer (11/04).
Ex: R.M. Smythe (5/01), lot 1114.
From The Richard J. Chouinard Collection of United States Coins, Part One.(#6108) (Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 24F5, PCGS# 6108)

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.
