Last Year of Draped Bust Design
Tied for Finest Known O-110
The 1807 O-105 and O-110 are the more common of 11 known die pairs of the Draped Bust, Heraldic Eagle design. Gem examples of the O-105 and O-110 are known. Needless to say, they are rare in such lofty grade. Recent sales of the O-110 variety include the MS65 NGC coin in the Denver ANA Signature (Heritage, 8/2006, lot 5228), which realized $40,250. Only 301,076 Draped Bust halves were struck before the Capped Bust design was implemented in 1807. Census for all varieties: 8 in 65, 1 finer (10/13).

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.
