Exquisite, Conditionally Unsurpassed 1829/7 Half
Overton-101, MS66

1829/7 50C MS66 PCGS. O-101, R.1. Electric-blue, russet-gold, and rose-gray colors alternate across both sides of this simply amazing, visually captivating Premium Gem. A sharply struck, satiny, and impeccably preserved coin. Among the finest-known examples of this popular Guide Book overdate variety. In fact, this is probably the single finest-known representative of Overton-101, based upon the pedigree information that has been supplied by our consignor. This data includes three labels from previous grading events: one from PCGS (MS66), and two from NGC (both as MS66 PL). Since PCGS lists two pieces in its Population at MS66, with NGC likewise listing two coins in its Census at MS66 PL, it would seem that the currently offered Premium Gem actually accounts for all four, representing the two finest-graded "coins" at each of the major services. With a combination of unsurpassed technical merit and visual quality, we believe that even the most discriminating specialist would be pleased to own this exquisite Capped Bust half dollar.(Registry values: N1) (NGC ID# 24FT, PCGS# 6155)

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.
