Early Die State 1822 Half Dollar, A Richly Toned MS 66 Representative
1822 50C MS 66 NGC. O-106, R.3. This coin is incorrectly labeled on the insert as an 1822/1 overdate. The most spectacular Capped Bust half dollar that this cataloger has ever seen, there is ample evidence for us to call this one of the first impressions with this die pair. The devices display razor sharp, if not full striking definition over nearly every feature. There are also several die scratches (as produced) along the obverse rim below star 13. Overton does not mention these scratches in his book, so it is likely that they were polished away in middle and later die states. In addition, the lower base of the second 2 in the date is heavy and recut. This feature probably also faded with subsequent impressions, and it may have misled NGC into labeling this coin as an 1822/1 overdate. There is a hairline-thin mark in the lower obverse field before the date, but the balance of the surfaces are all but abrasion-free with a crisp, frosty sheen. A rich overlay of crimson-copper and cobalt-blue toning rounds out this coin's list of positive attributes. This Gem is tied for finest certified honors with one other MS 66 NGC example (10/00). (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.
