Pleasing 1837 Half Dollar, MS63, Rare, Unlisted JR-29

1837 50C MS63 NGC. JR-29. This rare variety was not listed in Jules Reiver's Variety Identification Manual. The discovery piece appeared in our January 2006 Signature sale of the Jules Reiver Collection, lot 23402, in which we described the diagnostics as: 83 close, 1 and 7 high. Die crack from star 1 to star 5. Die crack under 837 to star 13. Die lump under A3 on the reverse, close to the wing. Die crack over top of ED STATE. Die crack through the middle of TES, and along the bottoms of OF AMERICA. Pleasing luster emanates from both sides of this attractive MS63 piece. Cobalt-blue, lavender, and golden-brown patination is more extensive and deeper on the obverse periphery than on that of the reverse. A well executed strike left strong definition on the design elements, save for softness on the centrils of the stars on the upper right obverse border, and on the tops of the letters ENTS in CENTS. A few inconsequential ticks define the grade. A small linear mark between the cap and stars 7 and 8 may help to identify the coin.(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 24G4, PCGS# 6176)

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.

It goes without saying that after the auction when we had a chance to have dinner together and get to know each other it even made it a better experience for me. I look forward to getting more involved with Heritage in the Future.
