Enchanting Gem 1851-O Half

1851-O 50C MS65 NGC. The 1851-O half dollar was heavily minted for the era, with production of 402,000 pieces; it was also heavily circulated, though lesser Mint State examples are available for a price. The appearance of a Gem at auction, however, is an infrequent occurrence. This captivating coin offers soft, pleasing luster that filters through rich violet, rose-gold, and silver-blue patina. Crisply struck and pleasingly preserved. The certified populations at NGC and PCGS mirror each other, with three MS65 examples graded by each service and one coin finer (8/08).
From The Sundance Collection.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 24HK, PCGS# 6267)

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.
