Description

1815/2 Capped Bust Half, MS62
Scarce Late Die State, O-101a

1815/2 50C MS62 NGC. O-101a, R.3. The 1815/2 Capped Bust half dollar claims a small mintage of 47,150 pieces, all delivered on January 10, 1816, just one day before the Mint suffered a crippling fire. All 1815 half dollars were struck from the same pair of overdated dies, and this coin shows the extensive network of die cracks on the reverse that characterizes the scarcer late O-101a die state. The 1815/2 is a sought-after key for both date and variety collectors, and Mint State examples are especially prized.
The present coin is an impressive MS62 specimen, with well-detailed design elements and interesting heavy clash marks on both sides. The surfaces are attractively toned in shades of champagne-gold and cerulean-blue, with vibrant mint luster under the patina. Only a few minor contact marks prevent an even higher grade.(Registry values: N4719) (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.
