1820/19 Square Base 2 Half Dollar, MS64
1820/19 50C Square Base 2 MS64 NGC. O-101, R.2. Ex: "Col."
E.H.R. Green. The 1820 Capped Bust half dollar claims a small
mintage of 751,122 pieces, with only eight die varieties known for
the date. Two of the most popular varieties are the overdates,
O-101 (Square Base 2, the present coin) and O-102 (Curl Base 2).
Six varieties of 1820 half dollars are listed on page 196 of the
2014 Guide Book, with the O-101 bringing a premium over all
types but the rare O-107 (No Serifs on E's). We know of only two
Gem examples. The Newman coin is a worthy aspirant to spots three
through five in the Condition Census.

The coin offered here is an attractive Choice example, with sharply detailed design elements and the remnants of the undertype digits plainly visible below the primary numerals. The well-preserved surfaces show none of the clash marks and die breaks often seen on Capped Bust half dollars, and no mentionable signs of contact are evident. This coin shows the vibrant mint luster and classic toning pattern that are hallmarks of this collection, with colorful rings of pink and gold surrounding brilliant silver centers. Eye appeal is tremendous.

A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
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.
