    1811/10 O-101 Half Dollar, MS64+
    Beautifully Toned, CAC Approved
    Dramatic Double Profile

    1811/10 50C O-101, R.1, MS64+ PCGS. CAC. Resplendent azure-blue and bronze-gold toning combine with smooth, mark-free surfaces for the Choice appeal of this "Punctuated Date" half dollar. Liberty's portrait is dramatically strike-doubled at the nose, lips, chin, and neck. The strike is for the most part razor-sharp, although the left-side stars are without the central definition -- a characteristic of the O-101 die pair that helps distinguish it from the similar O-102, which has sharp left-hand stars. Cartwheel mint luster beams brightly across both sides.

    Old-time collectors still call this the "18 dot 11" variety, since the overdate lacks all but a few tiny remnants. A sharp spike at the top cap fold is an equally noticeable feature of the variety. CAC-endorsed, this piece ranks at the top of the Condition Census for the O-101 based on Steve Herrman's current listing. Population (both 1811/10 varieties): 10 in 64 (4 in 64+), 1 finer. CAC: 4 in 64, 0 finer (2/19).

    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.
