Description

Later State 1795 O-117a Half, AU58

1795 50C 2 Leaves AU58 PCGS. O-117a, R.4. Most easily identifiable by the "defect line" between the right arm and base of the Y in LIBERTY. Overton also stated that the field was unfinished below the chin, the appearance due to heavy clash marks. The reverse has 9 berries left and 8 right, and this is the only such division with four berries under the left (right facing) wing. Also, the CA in AMERICA is recut, and the lower leaf is connected to the last A. Some clash marks are visible on the upper obverse.
Silver-gray surfaces display whispers of olive-green, sky-blue, and mauve. The design features are well impressed, as evidenced by sharp definition on Liberty's hair and the eagle's plumage, and the dentils are quite strong on both sides. A few light marks do not disturb.
Haseltine-11; Beistle 11a-P; Overton-40; Hilt 10-E; PCGS# 6052, 39234; Encyclopedia-4553.

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.
