Select Uncirculated 1872 Half, Errant 8 in Rock

1872 50C MS63 NGC. WB-102. Errant 8 in Rock. Very scarce in XF and better grades, the Errant 8 variety is considered by Wiley and Bugert to be a low R.8 in Mint State. It is distinguished by the bottom of an 8 in the lower portion of the rock above the space between the 8 and 7, with a trace of the 2 on the rock just above that digit in the date. Fully struck, the surfaces are bright and lustrous and remarkably attractive and problem-free for the grade. Population: 2 in 63, 7 finer (8/01).
From the Tommy Dorathy Collection of Seated Halves. (NGC ID# 24K7, PCGS# 6333)

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.
