Possible Finest Known 1826 O-105
Bust Half Dollar, MS66

1826 50C MS66 NGC. O-105, R.3. This coin may be the finest 1826 O-105 half dollar extant. This obviously important representative is identifiable by a small and well concealed spot over the bottom of the L in LIBERTY. Lightly toned in caramel-gold shades. The reverse impression is expertly centered, and it has brought up bold, if not sharp detail over all features. The obverse is also well produced, although we note that the denticles are broader at the upper border than they are at the lower. We are unable to locate a single distracting or mentionable abrasion. The obverse die crack (as struck) that connects stars 1-7 to the rim before the end of Liberty's bust is diagnostic of this variety. The profile is lightly strike doubled. A coin destined for inclusion within an advanced collection of Capped Bust halves.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 24FM, PCGS# 6143)

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.
