Superlative 1819/8 Large 9 O-102 Half, MS65

1819/8 50C Large 9 MS65 PCGS. CAC. O-102, R.2. Incorrectly identified on the PCGS holder as a Small 9 variety. There must have been a surplus of obverse dies dated 1818 that remained unused when New Year's day came along. There are six different 1819/8 overdate half dollar varieties known from five different dies.
This Gem is clearly from an old collection, with pale gray-brown patina and brilliant peripheral toning over satiny luster. Both sides are fully original, exactly what the connoisseur ordered. Only one finer piece has been auctioned recently, to the best of our knowledge. An MS66 appeared in the Juan Suros sale, and this MS65 along with another similarly graded piece are tied for second finest known. (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.

I know for a fact that the sale by Heritage was way beyond what I was offered by other people. If I had to do it over again, I would absolutely choose Heritage again.
