Splendid, High-Grade 1819 Half, O-109, MS64
A High Condition Census Piece
1819 50C MS64 PCGS. O-109, R.2. The variety is attributed by line 1 of stripe 5 being solid to crossbar 2 in the shield. Also, the 5 in 50 C. has a curved top. Most specimens, including the one offered here, show die defect lines joining the top and bottom of TE in STATES. While the 1819 half is often seen through AU and even in lower Mint State grades, near-Gem and Gem specimens are relatively scarce. The MS64 representative in this lot features well struck design elements, with nice definition in the star centers and most of Liberty's hair curls (the curl beneath the rear of the cap, however, displays weakness). The devices are generally well centered, and the dentilation is complete, though it becomes a tad thin along the left obverse border. Soft luster is apparent beneath light to medium golden-gray color, which is accented with touches of cobalt-blue along the margins. A few minute contact marks well concealed within the toning are noted on Liberty's cheek and neck. Listed as third finest on the Herrman C.C. (In reality it is tied with the Vermeule MS64.) Population: 9 in 64, 2 finer (3/09).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 24FB, PCGS# 6117)

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.
