Important 1822 O-102 'Overdate' Half, XF451822/1 50C XF45 PCGS. O-102, High R.4. This is the second "overdate" obverse. The small die lumps at star 12 identify the obverse die, and the variety.
Small die defect lumps are visible between the top inside points of star 12, but there is no evidence of the late state die cracks reported for this variety.
Dark gun-metal blue toning has a frame of deep gold near the borders of this pleasing piece. Lighter tan defines the slight wear on the high points. The O-102 die marriage is borderline R.5. This variety is more convincing as an overdate than is O-101, although it is doubtful that either is a true overdate.

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.
