Tied for Second Finest Known
The finest known 1818 O-107 half dollar, MS66 NGC, appeared in the 2003 ANA sale. Following close behind are two MS65 examples: this piece and one that was offered in the October 2006 sale of the Byers Collection. Several MS64 pieces complete the O-107 Condition Census.
A single small field mark appears over the eagle's head on this Gem, with no other marks of any consequence. The satin surfaces are fully lustrous with sharp design definition, although stars 1 and 8 are weak, apparently as always. Both sides have ivory centers with lovely gold peripheral iridescence. This piece is destined to appear in a high-grade type set or specialized variety collection.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 24F9, PCGS# 6113)

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.
