Lovely MS62 1823 Half Dollar
1823 50C Patched 3 MS62 PCGS. O-101a, R.1. The "Patched 3"
is the later die state of the "Broken 3." The engraver decided a
mint-made repair of the 3 in the obverse die would improve matters,
which is at best debatable. Light almond-gold toning adorns this
lustrous Bust half. Well struck at the centers, with only minor
inexactness on the star centers and other peripheral elements.
Unabraded save for trivial contact on Liberty's neck. Population: 7
in 62, 11 finer (3/10).
Patched 3, O-101a

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.
