Description:
1832 O-122 Half Dollar, PR63
Only Nine 1832 Proofs Known
1832 50C PR63 NGC. O-122, R.8 as a Proof. There are approximately nine proof 1832 half dollars known, as best we can determine. Those nine coins include two examples of O-106, two examples of O-122, and five examples of the proof-only O-123 rarity.
Boldly detailed as expected, with slight luster on the devices, and deeply mirrored fields on both sides. The central obverse and reverse exhibit pale gray-gold color, framed by splendid sky blue peripheral toning. It is reasonable to expect a few tiny ticks and faint hairlines on each side. Otherwise, the grade assigned by NGC would certainly be higher.
The following roster of 1832 proof half dollars is based in part on the database published twice a year by Stephen Herrman.

O-106
--PR65 NGC. Superior (5/2006), lot 582
--PR63. Garrett Collection (Bowers and Ruddy, 11/1979), lot 322.


O-122
--PR67 NGC. Pittman Collection (David Akers, 5/1998), lot 1499; Bowers and Merena (8/1999), lot 197; Bowers and Merena (11/2002), lot 1465; Bowers and Merena (8/2006), lot 3344.
--PR63 NGC. The present specimen. Earlier from Stack's (2/1980), lot 910; FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2008), lot 2873.


O-123
--PR68 NGC. Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr.; Eliasberg Estate (Bowers and Merena, 4/1997), lot 1881.
--PR63 PCGS. Christian Allenburger (B. Max Mehl, 5/1948), lot 880; Harold Bareford (Stack's, 1981), lot 386; later Sheridan Downey (5/1994), lot 8; Sheridan Downey (8/2001), lot 14; Russell J. Logan (Bowers and Merena, 11/2002), lot 2691.
--PR60. National Numismatic Collection; Smithsonian Institution.
--PR55. Charlton E. Meyer, Jr.
--PR45. Sheridan Downey (8/2004), lot 18.


There are likely a few other older auction references not included above, but we believe the roster is virtually complete. This remarkable specimen will enjoy enthusiastic appreciation from connoisseurs of the Capped Bust half dollars.
From The Greensboro Collection, Part II. (PCGS# 6212)

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.
