1819/8 Large 9 O-104a Half Dollar
MS62, R.6 Late Die State

1819/8 50C Large 9 MS62 NGC. O-104a, R.6. Stars 2 and 4 are recut, and the reverse shows missing upper serifs on the E's. In this die state the reverse shows several die cracks: one from the lower rim beneath the 0 and up through the C in the denomination, the arrowheads, arcing around to join the scroll and end at the upper rim in TAT. A second arc runs through the lower claws, fletchings, and olive leaves. Another arcs up through UN to the left scroll end. A couple of smaller cracks appear, seemingly a die on the verge of shattering. This is a lovely, lustrous piece with amber-gray toning and a few ticks on Liberty that account for the grade. "Ear bar" clashes appear from the reverse die. This piece appears considerably finer than any of the pieces listed in Stephen Herrman's auction prices realized, where he notes that the late die state is R.6.
From The Good Harbour Bay Collection. (NGC ID# 24FC, PCGS# 6119)

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.
