    Incredible 1818/7 O-102 Half, MS66
    Likely Finest Known of the Variety

    1818/7 50C Small 8 MS66 NGC. Ex: Kaufman. O-102, R.2. An extraordinary example of this popular overdate variety, one of the highly desirable "naked eye" overdates that can be seen without magnification. The strike is bold with frosty luster beneath deep violet-gray and pale iridescent toning. Both sides have exceptional, pristine surfaces that are practically mark-free. The finest examples of this variety that have been offered in recent auctions include an MS65 and a small number of MS64 pieces. The present MS66 example is almost certainly the finest known of the variety, and perhaps the finest of any 1818/7 overdate variety.

    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.
