Deeply Toned AU 1812/1 O-101 Half Dollar, Large 8 Variety1812/1 50C Large 8 AU50 PCGS. O-101, R.5. A very scarce and always-desirable variety among early Bust halves. This piece appears to be tied for second finest known with two other coins. This piece shows only the slightest trace of friction over the highpoints of the design. Otherwise, the surfaces are mostly charcoal-gray. The most notable marks are an X in front of Liberty's neck and a diagonal milling mark just to the right. A rare opportunity for the advanced collector of Bust halves. Not only is this an important R.5 die marriage, but it is also a distinct variety listed in the Guide Book. Such pieces are subject to heavy demand from intermediate level collectors, those with an interest in varieties who have not yet begun complete collections by individual die marriages.

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.
