    Late Die State 1813 O-103 Half Dollar, MS66 ★

    1813 50C MS66 ★ NGC. Ex: Kaufman. O-103, R.2. Stephen Herrman describes a late die state of the 1813 O-103 half dollar, labeled O-103'a' with a reverse die crack at the base of D ST. This Premium Gem has just such a die crack, faint but clearly visible, beginning at the base of D to the base of S, through the base of T, and terminating at the inside of the right diagonal of the A. The late die state is called R.3, but few have been offered for sale.
    Although NGC has certified eight examples of the date as MS66, this is the only one with the Star designation. It is a gorgeous Premium Gem with frosty silver luster beneath an amazing combination of light gold, russet, sky-blue, and lime-green toning. Census: 1 in 66 , 1 finer (3/09).

    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.
