Description

Elusive Gem Mint State 1817 Capped Bust Half Dollar

1817 50C MS65 NGC. O-110, R.2. One of the Finest examples of this variety and date known, with extraordinary surfaces for a coin of this period. The fields are bathed in luster, and Liberty's curls are well defined by the dies, as are the eagle's feathers. Fully struck on all the stars too, and the only weakness is found on the motto in the area which is opposite Liberty's ample bust. Toned with light gold over the luster, and with minimal signs of handling as expected for the lofty grade. This coin is worthy of a connoisseurs cabinet. Population: 4 in 65, 2 finer (10/05).(#6109) (Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 24F6, PCGS# 6109)

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.
