Desirable O-101 1815/2 Half, MS611815/2 50C MS61 NGC. O-101, R.2. Dies prominently clashed, but the die crack through the denomination marking the O-101a subvariety has not yet formed. This overdated die pair is the only variety for the year, and the 1815/2 is widely considered to be the key to the date set of Bust halves. Few survivors are so attractive as this MS61 coin. It offers pleasing overall detail, with only a touch of weakness at the stars to the right. Warm gold, orange, and pink shadings embrace much of the surfaces, while the rest is silver-gray. Excellent eye appeal. Census: 3 in 61, 21 finer (6/08).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 24F5, PCGS# 6108)
Weight: 13.48 grams
Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper

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.
