Richly and Originally Toned 1818/7 Large 8 Half, Condition Census MS65 Preservation

1818/7 50C Large 8 MS65 PCGS. O-101, R.1. Actually, the die state is an intermediate one between O-101 and O-101a. The obverse displays the crack (as struck) from the rim through star 11 to Liberty's hair curls that Overton notes for the O-101a variety. The reverse, on the other hand, does not exhibit a crack from 50 C, over the olive leaves, to the UNI in UNITED. Overdate Capped Bust Halves are a favorite among the numerous collectors who specialize in this long-defunct series. These coins, however, are very difficult to locate in the finer Mint State grades. For example, the 1818/7 Large 8 is represented by only two MS65 coins at PCGS, and there are none finer (9/02). This is one of the most visually appealing and technically sound Capped Bust Halves that this cataloger has seen irrespective of date or die variety. Streaks of copper-orange iridescence are seen on both sides with blushes of steel-blue color around the reverse periphery. Both of these colors overlay otherwise lavender-gray surfaces. Clashmarks (as struck) are evident in the fields, but neither side is marred by a single distracting abrasion. Well centered with an overall sharp strike. Overton's Condition Census for this die marriage reads: 65; 63; 63; 63; 63. (PCGS# 6115)

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.
