Rare O-107 Variety
This example appears original and wholesome except for a trio of dents on the obverse and a resultant bend in the coin. Otherwise, it displays natural deep, dove-gray color with details approaching VF if not for the damage. The date is complete with only slight weakness at the bottom. The diagnostics for the O-107 variety are clear with Star 1 terminating at Liberty's first curl (but not penetrating it) and the point of Star 15 very close to the extreme end of Liberty's bust. It has the correct reverse die pairing with berries 10-11 (the only reverse with 21 berries, also seen on several other varieties of the date).
From the collection of Donald E. Bently, sold for the benefit of the Bently Foundation.
Service and Handling Description: Coins & Currency (view shipping information)
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.
