1846 Tall Date Half Dollar, MS66
Finest Certified Tall Date
Unlisted Die Variety

1846 50C Tall Date MS66 NGC. The open 6 in the date confirms the Tall Date. The MS66 coin in this sale represents a die variety unlisted in Wiley and Bugert (see Paul Brill, "A New 1846 Tall Date Half Dollar Die Variety," The Gobrecht Journal, Collective Volume Number Four, pp. 432-434). Brill says this variation was listed by Larry Briggs in a Coin World ad dated January 3, 1994.
This die variety shows the following: recutting on the left side of the 8; recutting on all stars except star 9; a die crack through the bottoms of HALF DOL; a crack through the tops of STATES; a light crack through the tops of RICA.
Electric-blue toning at the margins yields to reddish-gold and lavender in the centers. The design elements are sharply struck and there are no post-strike impairments. Census: 1 in 66 Tall Date, 0 finer (11/11). (NGC ID# 24H7, PCGS# 6252)

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.
