Possibly Unique Proof O-112 1829 Small Letters Half, PR63
Ex: Norweb
1829 50C Small Letters PR63 NGC. O-112. Ex: Norweb. The date is well centered. A patch of parallel die lines are noted below obverse star 13. On the reverse, the arrow heads are separated, stripe 6 is solid, and line 3 of stripe 5 extends to the second crossbar. Sharply struck with gorgeous red-brown and electric-blue peripheral toning, and carefully preserved surfaces that only exhibit a few wispy marks on each side. This may be the only proof known of the Overton-112 variety. This piece appeared in Part III of the Norweb Collection (November 1988), where it was described as:
"1829 O-112. Proof-63. Mostly brilliant surfaces change to a whisper of light gold at the borders.
"The Proof surface is interrupted by a few areas of semi-frost on the obverse. The reverse is full Proof throughout, including within the shield stripes. The overall aspect is superb, and the coin stands as one of the finest Proof representatives of this date and variety. Walter Breen mentions that Beistle examined a specimen in the Col. E.H.R. Green Collection." The coin realized $16,500 in that historic sale from 20 years ago. Other PR63 examples of the 1829 that have been offered at public auction more recently have ranged in price from $16,100 to $46,750.
From Hollinbeck Coin Co.'s sale of December 1954, lot 730.

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.
