A Super 1795 Half Dollar, 2 Leaves
AU58, O-121

1795 50C 2 Leaves AU58 PCGS. O-121, R.4. A classic early American half dollar, the Flowing Hair type was produced for only two years, 1794 and 1795. Not as rare as its 1794 cousin, the '95 is often sought by collectors seeking to complete an early U.S. type set. The variety is attributed by the following: the Y in LIBERTY is punched over a star, star 1 is attached solidly to the left base of the first curl but does not go through, and there are nine berries left and eight right, the only division with four berries under the left (right facing) wing.
This is a wonderful AU58 specimen that contains a good deal of luster on remarkably clean steel-gray surfaces laced with soft sky-blue. An impressive strike leaves excellent definition on the design features, including sharpness on Liberty's hair and virtual completeness on the eagle's plumage. Only the stars along the right border reveal softness in the centers. Clash marks are noted on the obverse, and light adjustment marks are located along the right reverse border. This is a super early half dollar!(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.
