1811 O-103 Half Dollar, MS65
1811 50C Large 8, O-103, R.3, MS65 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The
tiny die lines in front of the bust, near the milling, promptly
identify this Large 8 variety. What the O-103 identification fails
to distinguish is the incredible premium toning, completely
original, that appears evenly on each side. Concentric circles of
mint-green, iridescent blue, and pinkish-gray form an appearance
that is unsurpassable in terms of aesthetic appeal. Brilliant mint
luster shines unimpeded through the toning, and the sharp strike is
every bit a match for the Gem classification. Simply unimprovable.
This piece is the second finest known per the census in the fifth
edition of the Overton reference.

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.
