Description

Important 1815/2 Select Half Dollar, O-101

1815/2 50C MS63 NGC. O-101, R.2. This date is important because of its limited availability in only one die pairing. After the War of 1812, when depositors started to bring silver deposits to the mint for coinage, unused dies from 1812 were retrieved from storage and a 5 was punched over the 2. This obverse die and a single accompanying reverse die were the only set of ides used to produce the estimated 47,150 pieces dated 1815 (Al Overton, Early Half Dollar Die Varieties).
A melange of gray, sky-blue, olive-green, gold-tan, and crimson patination bathes both sides of this sharply struck piece. Extensive clash marks are noted on both obverse and reverse, but there are no outstanding abrasions to report. Overall, quite a decent MS63 specimen. Census: 7 in 63, 9 finer (10/07).(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.
