Very Rare Late State 1818 O-104b Half, MS62

1818 50C MS62 PCGS. O-104b, R.6 in the late state. The obverse die is shattered as described in Overton for State a, with additional cracks that are unlisted. The die crack above star 7 is extremely heavy, joining the cap in a small lump and continuing through the headband. Another crack joins all of the stars on the right, beginning above star 8 and continuing to star 13. Steve Herrman lists this late die state as O-104b in his record, and proposes that it is R.6 in the late state.
This splendid Mint State piece has frosty silver luster beneath light ivory at the centers, with deep steel peripheral toning. The Frederick Collection coin has exceptional eye appeal for the grade.
Edge 39: FIFTY CENTHSALF A DOLLAR.
From The Donald R. Frederick Collection of Early U.S. Coinage: Bayside Part II.

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.
