Lovely 1827 O-120a Half, MS65+

1827 50C Square Base 2 MS65+ PCGS. CAC. O-120a, R.3. Heavy die lines below the bust tip identify the obverse that was shared with O-120 and O-149, the latter a major rarity. This late die state O-120a half dollar has a crack through UNITED STATES. This MS65+ specimen is different than the other MS65 that has appeared in three previous Heritage auctions. Fully original olive-gold patina provides plenty of eye appeal, with additional iridescent peripheries on each side. The strike is sharp with only a few flat stars. This beautiful Gem is destined for a high grade type or variety collection. Population: 2 in 65+, 4 finer (11/10) for all 1827 varieties.(Registry values: N1) (NGC ID# 24FN, PCGS# 6144)

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.
