Description

Originally Toned Gem 1827/6 Bust Half Dollar, O-102, R.1.

1827/6 50C MS65 PCGS. O-102, R.1. The right loop of the underdigit is clearly visible to the right of the 7 in the date. All of the obverse stars are drawn toward the edges of the coin, a diagnostic feature of this variety and an indication that the obverse die, the same used on Overton-101, is in a later state, and beginning to exhibit symptoms of wear. Otherwise, this conditionally rare Gem shows unusually sharp striking characteristics, especially on the eagle's feathers. Rich original toning appears on both sides, in warm, variegated earth tones that include olive, dark-green, and golden-brown. Full glowing luster shines forth from the impressively preserved surfaces, and a few wispy marks on the obverse, on Liberty's portrait and in the left obverse field, are all that keep the piece from being pristine. A delightful, beautifully toned and undamaged Gem, and one of the finest examples of the Overton-102 variety that we have been privileged to offer in recent years. PCGS Population: 1 in 65, 1 finer (11/05).(Registry values: N1) (NGC ID# 24FP, PCGS# 6147)

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.
