Description:
1845-O No Drapery Half Dollar, MS64
Tied for Finest Certified
1845-O 50C No Drapery MS64 PCGS. CAC. From a large mintage of more than 2 million pieces, the 1845-O Seated Liberty half dollar is an available date in lower circulated grades, becomes scarce in AU, and is rare in Mint State. For all varieties, PCGS has certified nine in MS64 and only two in MS65. Even rarer is the 1845-O No Drapery that is offered here, with only two MS64 PCGS coins and none finer (12/09).
The No Drapery variety is a late die state with excessive die polishing removing the drapery at Liberty's elbow. While many partial drapery pieces exist with remnants of the drapery remaining, the true No Drapery pieces are extremely rare.
The present coin is a memorable example, with bright luster and semiprooflike fields. Both sides have a slight overlay of golden-rose patina, with a scattering of russet and blue around the borders. The luster is so strong the coin seems brilliant, despite the attractive toning. Fully struck in all areas except star 7, which is only sharp. A coin worthy of the finest collection of Seated Liberty half dollars and sure to inspire spirited bidding when this lot is called. (NGC ID# 24H5, PCGS# 6250)

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.
