The Finest Known 1817/3 O-101 Half, MS66
1817/3 50C MS66 NGC. Ex: Kaufman. O-101, R.3. Like the 1814/3 offered earlier, the 1817/3 overdate is a naked eye variety that can clearly be seen without any help from a glass. Unlike the 1814/3, this overdate is mostly visible at the bottom of the 7, with virtually the entire bottom half of the previous 3 still intact. Both dies are perfect, with no evidence of the late state die cracks, and also no evidence of the "pronounced die lumps" that Overton describes. Perhaps this example is deserving of an O-101 "prime" designation, indicating the perfect dies.
PCGS has certified two MS64 submissions, the finest examples of this date that they have ever examined. At NGC, the Census Report lists six MS64s, two MS65s, and this solitary MS66 specimen, the finest ever certified. Quite a few others have been certified in lower Mint State grades but there is certainly a high probability of resubmission for this issue, resulting in only a few different physical coins. Probably just a dozen Mint State examples survive, and there is no doubt that this amazing Premium Gem is the finest of all.
The strike is a trifle weak on the high points, but the luster is incredible with satiny surfaces beneath lovely light silver, pale gray, lilac, blue-green, and gold toning that deepens near the border. Examination with a glass reveals only a few slight imperfections on otherwise pristine surfaces.
From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.(Registry values: N1) (NGC ID# 24F7, PCGS# 6111)

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.
