Description:
Scarce 1827 Bust Half Curl Base 2 MS64, O-147
1827 50C Curl Base 2 MS64 PCGS. O-147, R.4. In 1827, the Mint went to town with half dollar production, creating a total of 49 different die varieties. Specialists in the series look upon these coins in one of two ways, either as a favorite issue ripe for cherrypicking, or as a least favorite issue that slows down progress. The majority of the known varieties feature a square base 2 in the date. Just three 1827/6 overdate varieties exist, as well as two die combinations with the curl base 2 obverse. This example is the rarer of these two curl base 2 varieties, and is seldom seen in Mint State grades. Only about half a dozen such coins are known today. This is likely not the finest known example, yet it is almost definitely in the Condition Census for this variety. The surfaces have frosty pewter-gray luster with peripheral gold and blue iridescence. Population: 2 in 64, 1 finer (12/06).

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.
