Description

Super 1817 Half Dollar, MS66 1817 50C MS66 ★ NGC. O-110a, R.2 . A triple denticle above star 13 attributes the variety. A die crack from the top of the cap joins all stars on the right as it runs to the bottom of the curls and bust, and a fine crack runs through ERICA downward touching points of two lower arrowheads and then goes through 50 C. to edge, confirming the later die state. This particular piece is perhaps the finest known of the variety, as Stephen Herrman, in his Auction & Mail Bid Prices Realized for Bust Half Dollars, 1794-1839, lists as the highest graded an NGC MS64 from the Bowers and Merena January 1999 Rarities/Noblet Sale.

This beautiful Premium Gem with Star displays an array of cobalt-blue, orange-gold, rose, and mauve on nicely preserved surfaces that exude pleasing luster. A powerful strike manifests itself in sharp definition on all of the design elements, which are well centered on the planchet. Most of the dentilation shows on both sides. A super coin! Census: 1 in 66 ★ , 1 finer (11/06).(Registry values: N1) (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.
