Description

Prooflike 1828 O-106 Half, AU50

1828 50C Curl Base 2, Knob AU50 PCGS. O-106, High R.4. O-106 and O-107 have a curl base, knobbed 2, and each shares the same reverse with the U in UNITED recut. O-106 has the 1 centered between the border and drapery, while O-107 has the 1 much closer to the drapery. An intermittent guide line is visible at many of the obverse dentil tips.
The obverse die is fresh and crisp. The reverse has a fine die crack through the tops of UNITED, with fine die lines including heavy die lines through the scroll below the D.
All design details on both sides are boldly defined. The obverse and reverse fields are fully mirrored, especially between the vertical shield stripes on the reverse. Excellent contrast is visible between the fields and devices. Both sides have delicate gold, violet, and blue toning that deepens near the borders. In our opinion PCGS has clearly under graded this lovely piece.
Don Frederick considered this piece to be a proof, and his conclusion is fully understandable. Although our opinion is different, the opportunity to acquire and study this impressive half dollar should be carefully considered.
From The Donald R. Frederick Collection of Early U.S. Coinage: Bayside Part II.

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.

The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
