Description:
Lustrous 1795 O-116 Half, AU55
1795 50C 2 Leaves AU55 PCGS. O-116, R.4. The obverse is from the same die as O-115, but with the die cracks even more advanced. An additional crack joins star 7 to the border, with a light die crack through the field over Liberty's head to the left base of R. Light clash marks in the left and right obverse field appear as dull ridges, and are especially visible to the left of the hair. Clashed letters from UNITED are visible through LIBERTY. The reverse does not have any visible die cracks, but does show blunt clash marks including dentils that are visible between UNITED and the border, and elsewhere.
Due to a brief period in circulation, the surfaces have numerous tiny marks, yet this piece presents exceptional aesthetic appeal with its soft ivory surfaces and pleasing gold luster. The reverse has a satiny pewter color, also with hints of gold toning. Some weakness of strike is evident on each side, in the centers and also at the borders.
Haseltine-7; Beistle 7-K; Overton-35; Hilt 7-H; PCGS# 6052, 39232; Encyclopedia-4553.
Ex: Sheridan Downey (11/1997).
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.
