Challenging Choice O-113a 1817 Half1817 50C MS64 NGC. O-113a, R.4. A scarce late die state identified by a slender die crack through UNITED. Steve Herrman's Prices Realized for Bust Half Dollars (Autumn 2009) reveals that only four MS64 examples of this variety have crossed the auction block in the past 10 years, and only seven Uncirculated pieces have been sold during the same period, regardless of numerical grade. Gleaming luster rolls across remarkably clean fields. One minute tick on Liberty's breast and another within the eagle's shield are all that apparently kept this coin from receiving a higher grading opinion by NGC.
Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2008), lot 1473, which realized $6,900.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 24F6, PCGS# 6109)

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.
