Description

Toned Mint State 1822 O-106, R.3

1822 50C MS61 NGC. O-106, R.3. Some researchers have conjectured that this variety is an overdate, like the O-101 and O-102. Overton concludes that there is insufficient evidence to call it an overdate, but the last 2 in the date is noticeably thicker, and an obvious dot lies within. The 18 is much higher than the 22. Line two of stripe five and line one of stripe six extend upward into the crossbars to aid the reverse attribution. This lovely coin is fully Mint State and somewhat prooflike, with attractive greenish-gray toning with glints of aqua and indigo in the protected areas. Abundant mint luster radiates from underneath the toning. The strike is bold, with all star centrils detailed, sculpted hair details on Liberty, and fully outlined feathers on the eagle. A bit of weakness is present on the eagle's claws and the highest lock of hair behind the liberty band. There is a small, as-made planchet flaw near TY in LIBERTY. Examination with a glass shows a couple of scrapes on Liberty's cheek and neck. Despite these trivial imperfections, this coin remains highly desirable, attractive, and unusually well preserved. Envelope Included.(Registry values: N991) (NGC ID# 24FG, PCGS# 6129)

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.
