Description:
'Ugly 3' 1823, Among the Highest Graded at NGC
1823 50C Ugly 3 XF45 NGC. O-110a, R.3. Whoever tried to improve the 3 in the date by crude repunching did it no favors, since this variety has long been known as the "ugly 3." There is an obverse die crack connecting the 3 to the milling, but it does not connect upward to the hair curl, contrary to what Overton notes. A reverse die crack runs through the olive leaves, enters the eagle's wing, and exits above before fading out. A second crack runs down from the eagle's right wing through the arrowheads before it terminates. The present specimen has dark-gray surfaces with faded mint luster underlying. The strike is not bad overall, with weakness on a couple of highpoint hair curls, at the bust, and on at the eagle's left (facing) wing and left claw. The profile is strongly doubled from the mouth to the bust. Perusal with a glass reveals smooth surfaces with no mentionable distractions. A good opportunity to add this popular variety to a high-grade Bust half collection.
Ex: Jim McGuigan (3/12/1985). Envelope Included. (PCGS# 6134)

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.
