    1812 O-103 Half Dollar, MS65
    Condition Census Candidate

    1812 50C MS65 PCGS. CAC. O-103, R.1. Light clash marks are evident on the reverse of this splendid specimen. A fully brilliant and highly lustrous Gem, this piece exhibits lovely mint frost with delicate gold and iridescent peripheral toning on each sign, providing a frame to the sharply defined design motifs. The stars along the right obverse border are blunt, the only signs of a less than fully strike, and that weakness is characteristic of the variety. A small number of Gem or finer specimens are known for the O-103 die pair, including one MS67 and three MS65s in the Overton Census. Stephen Herrman's auction analysis records an MS66 NGC coin and three MS65 NGC coins, along with a single MS65 uncertified coin, the only high grade appearances since 1997. Population: 9 in 65, 13 finer (7/11), for all 1812 varieties.

    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.
