Description

1795 O-124 Half Dollar, AU50
Third Finest Known

1795 50C 2 Leaves AU50 NGC. O-124, R.5. Star 15 is attached to the bust, and a point of the first star pierces the lowest curl. The variety is further confirmed by a die defect lump in the lower right reverse field. The surfaces are toned a light to medium gray, and reveal several obverse adjustment marks, mostly at the peripheries. A couple of shallow scratches and minor scrapes are also noted on each side. The motifs are generally well centered on the planchet, and most of the dentilation shows, except where interrupted by the adjustment marks, especially along the left obverse border. The design elements are for the most part well-impressed, with nice definition showing on Liberty's hair, and on the eagle's wing and neck feathers. The tops of the letters in AMERICA are weak, as are the eagle's breast and leg feathers. This piece is listed as third finest for the variety in the latest Stephen Hermann census.
Ex: Dallas Signature (Heritage, 12/2004), lot 6032.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 24E7, PCGS# 6052)

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.
