Incredibly Nice 1812 Bust Half Dollar MS66

1812 50C MS66 PCGS. O-110, R.1. Easily attributed by the die scratch below the end of the bust on the obverse, and on the reverse by the extensions into the right wing from crossbar 2 from the top and 3 from the bottom. This is an early die state that lacks the die crack below UNITED STAT on the reverse, and the milling is complete on both sides. This magnificent piece is the finest known example of the variety with the Condition Census listed in Overton as (65, 64, 63, 63, 62).
Almost fully struck throughout, the only areas of weakness are on the date and the upper reverse, the coin obviously having been struck from misaligned dies. The other peripheral devices are impressively brought up and, as mentioned above, the milling is complete on each side. Almost brilliant, the obverse and reverse both show just a hint of light golden-brown patina around the margins, otherwise the coin is brilliant. The only mentionable or even noticeable distraction on this magnificent Bust Half is a trivial blemish in the reverse field below the T in UNITED. Population: 7 in 66, 1 finer (4/03). (NGC ID# 24EW, PCGS# 6100)

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.
