    Elusive 1809 Overton-114a Bust Half

    1809 50C Fine 15 NGC. O-114a, R.5. On this rare die variety the chin of Liberty is weak from striking. Her mouth is broad and slightly open. The reverse has numerous die cracks, the largest of which runs downward from the eagle's neck through stripe four to the bottom rim. A second crack emerges from the rim near the leftmost pair of olive leaves and splits. Part runs right into the olive leaves, a second part runs left through UNITED. Die lines pass through the D S and from PL through TA in the legend and motto. The present example, a light pink-gray, shows no singular problems other than considerable wear.
    Ex: Don Gunnett (3/9/1980). Envelope Included.(Registry values: N208) (NGC ID# 24ES, PCGS# 6092)

    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.
