1819/8 O-102 Half Dollar, MS63
1819/8 50C Large 9 MS63 PCGS. O-102, R.2. In his auction

State examples that have appeared in auctions since 1989, including
only one in the past three years. The seven appearances above MS63
represent only four different coins. This Select Mint State piece
is likely one of the six or seven finest examples of the variety.
Both sides are fully lustrous with frosty silver surfaces beneath
delicate gray-gold and iridescent toning with trivial marks only
visible under a loupe. Population: 7 in 63, 7 finer (12/12), for
all Large 9 over 8 varieties. (NGC ID# 24FC, PCGS# 6119)

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.
