Curious 1824 O-103 Overdate Half, MS65

1824 50C Over Various Dates MS65 NGC. Ex: Eliasberg/Kaufman. O-103, R.1. This is one of the most intriguing varieties in the early half dollar kingdom. We can say with certainty that it is an overdate but we have no idea what the previous dates were, as it is obviously a multiple overdate. It is typically described as "1824/3/0" or "1824/2/0." To this cataloger's eye, it looks like it might be an 1824/3/2 overdate.
In 1929, M.L. Beistle summed up the matter when he wrote "Figure 4 is re-cut over a number of other figures, and it is impossible to tell how many other figures have been cut over, as they are a jumbled mass of recuttings."
This piece from the Eliasberg Collection is clearly in the Condition Census for the variety. It has frosty luster with silver-gray surfaces and hints of iridescent toning. The surfaces and strike are all excellent, providing for a high degree of aesthetic appeal.
Ex Richard B. Winsor (S.H. and H. Chapman, 12/1895), lot 598; J.M. Clapp; John H. Clapp; Clapp Estate (1942); Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr. (Bowers and Merena, 4/1997), lot 1800.

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.
