Attractive 1829 Small Letters Fifty Cent
O-105, MS66

1829 50C Small Letters MS66 NGC. Ex: Eliasberg/Kaufman. O-105, R.1. The recut upper arrow shaft is characteristic of early die states of Overton-105, the I in PLURIBUS is entirely right of the stand of the second T in STATES, and TAT of STATES progresses downward, the first T considerably above the first S and the A, while the second T is below the A.
This sharply struck Premium Gem displays the design elements nicely centered on the planchet. Light bluish-gray dominates both sides, accented with golden-orange, purple, and ice-blue. Partially prooflike fields highlight the motifs at certain angles. A few minuscule grade-consistent marks do not detract in the least from the coin's pleasing eye appeal.
Ex: George H. Earle Collection, Henry Chapman (6/1912); John H. Clapp; Clapp Estate, 1942, to Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr.; Louis E. Eliasberg Collection (Bowers and Merena, 4/1997), lot 1849.
From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.

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.
