    Description

    1808/7 50C XF45 PCGS. O-101, R.1. Obverse 1 is the overdate obverse with clear signs of a 7 inside the upper loop of the 8 and above the upper left curve of that digit. Reverse A has a gap in the leg feathers just right of the shield border. Neither die was used for any other marriages, true for every 1808 die marriage except O-108 and 109 that shared a common reverse die.
    This sharply defined piece exhibits the earlier obverse die cracks including a crack from the edge to the 1 that fails to continue into the drapery. There is no evidence of a crack through the stars on the right. All of the reverse die cracks described in Overton are present.
    Minor handling marks on each side are consistent with the grade of this pleasing half dollar. Both sides have pewter gray surfaces with peripheral accents of gold and sea-green through the stars and letters.
    Ex: The Baltimore Sale (Kagin's, 8/1985), lot 492.

    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.
