Description:
Desirable 1815/2 O-101a Half Dollar, MS63
1815/2 50C MS63 NGC. O-101a, R.3. Both sides of this late die state example have heavy clash marks. The obverse crack from the curl below the ear and onto the neck is no further advanced from the early state. The reverse has a crack that begins in the olive leaves, crosses the wing tip to the tops of UNI, follows the border over TED STATES, and curves down through OF to the right end of the scroll. A second crack begins at the border over M, curves down through ERIC to the base of A, crosses all three arrow heads to the C, and continues down through the denomination to the border below the lowest leaf pair.
Mint State examples of the 1815/2 half dollar, regardless of die state, are extremely difficult to find, and make only occasional market appearances. The present sale provides bidders with a chance to pursue two different Mint State pieces, in distinctly different die states. Since 1993, we have only offered 15 Mint State examples in previous sales, and only seven of those (all MS64) are finer than the present coin. Deep olive-gray and gold surfaces exhibit satiny underlying luster with excellent surfaces for the grade. The strike is excellent and the overall eye appeal will please nearly any collector.
From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.(Registry values: N7079) (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.
