1834 O-116 Half Dollar, MS65
Small Date, Small Letters

1834 50C Small Date, Small Letters MS65 PCGS. CAC. O-116, R.1. Struck from a new obverse hub with a doubled outline to the drapery clasp. The reverse has a fine diagonal die line from the upper curve of the left wing, down toward the shield. Crossbars 4 and 5 extend into the right wing. Only three or four Gem specimens survive, including one remarkable coin that is recorded as MS68 in the Overton census. This piece is easily a census-level specimen. A satiny Gem, this specimen has ivory and gray centers with subtle iridescent peripheries. Both sides are nicely detailed, although feathers left of the shield exhibit some weakness. Population: 8 in 65, 1 finer (7/11), for all 1834 Small Date half dollar varieties.
From The Oliver Collection. (NGC ID# 24FY, PCGS# 6166)

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.
