Description:
Late State 1795 O-117a Half Dollar, VF35
1795 50C 2 Leaves VF35 NGC. O-117a, R.4. The heavy die crack from the bust to the edge midway between the 5 in the date and star 15 confirms the die state. As mentioned in Overton's third edition, a finer crack from this one joins the top of 95. Overton further indicates: "Later states also show a crack from edge across curls and out to edge at star 5. Still another fine crack at bottom of 17." This example evidently is not of a later die state, as these cracks are not apparent.
Pleasing light to medium gray color in the fields highlights the motifs, more so on the obverse. Strong definition is especially apparent on Liberty's hair strands, and in the eagle's tail feathers, as well as those in the interior portion of the wings. The design elements are nicely centered on the planchet, and the dentilation is relatively strong on both sides. A few inoffensive marks are visible on Liberty's cheek and neck. All in all, a lovely midgrade specimen that is sure to draw the attention of early half dollar aficionados.
Haseltine-11; Beistle 11a-P; Overton-40; Hilt 10-E; PCGS #6052; 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.
