Description

1802 Half Dollar, O-101, VF30
Bold Central Details

1802 50C VF30 PCGS. O-101. R.3. Ex: Benson Collection. This colorful, 1802 Draped Bust half dollar features classic eye appeal with rich, 2-sided target toning. The coin possesses nice hair detail for the VF30 grade, which is perhaps a touch conservative except for some ancient hairlines hiding beneath the toning. Aqua, gold, and deep-blue color with electric-blue highlights -- most likely acquired from years of storage in an original coin board -- enhances both sides of this attractive half. Always in demand from collectors, the Overton variety O-101 is the only die pairing for this scarce date.
Per the Benson catalog, a previous owner purchased this coin from Ira S. Reed on June 3, 1944 for the princely sum of $15.50.
Ex: Benson Collection, Part II (Ira & Larry Goldberg, 2/2002), lot 883.

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.

If my clients were to auction something of significance, having Mike as the auctioneer would be a deal maker as far as I am concerned.
