Description

Desirable 1795 O-113 A over E Half, AU50

1795 50C 2 Leaves AU50 NGC. O-113, R.3. A over E in STATES. Obverse star 1 pierces Liberty's lowest hair curl. A rough die break that resides between star 15 and the date is one of the two chief diagnostics for this variety, the other being the A in STATES prominently repunched over a previous E. A die crack is beginning to form across the tops of LIBERTY, indicating an intermediate die state between O-113 and O-113a.
Apparently the sixth finest known O-113 half dollar. The dove-gray surfaces reveal golden accents near the borders, representing traces of the coin's original mint luster. The right obverse border has visible disturbances that represent improper operation of the Castaing machine, with the lettering not properly centered on the edge of the planchet.
Haseltine-5; Beistle 5-I; Overton-30; Hilt 15-Q; PCGS# 6052; Encyclopedia-4559.
Ex: Alpine Numismatics (11/1999).
From The Westmoreland County Collection of Early Bust Halves, 1794-1807.

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.
