Remarkable 1821 O-105a Half Dollar, MS66

1821 50C MS66 NGC. Ex: Eliasberg. O-105a, R.1. An incredible Premium Gem from the Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr. Collection, this piece has a fully prooflike obverse and a frosty, lustrous reverse. Both sides have splendid original reddish-gold toning with splashes of blue, green, and russet iridescence, primarily near the borders. This piece is arguably one of the finest, if not the finest known example of the variety. Census: 5 in 66, 0 finer (3/09), the data for all seven varieties of the date combined. The current sale has a small number of spectacular early half dollars pedigreed to the Eliasberg Collection, giving younger collectors a feel for the remarkable offering in 1997, when nearly 250 similar-quality pieces were sold in just a couple of hours on the evening of April 7.
From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 24FF, PCGS# 6128)

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.
