1822 O-105a Half, MS64
1822 50C MS64 PCGS. O-105a, R.3. The fourth edition of the
Overton reference introduced a new die state, O-105a, with all of
the stars on the right flatly struck, but with no mention of an
obverse die crack. This example has the stars on the right sharply
defined, but also has a crack through all the stars on the right,
from the back of the cap down to the border right of the date. The
reverse has the usual crack through the legend.
Important Late Die State
This Choice Mint State piece is far finer than any others known with the obverse die crack, and it would be a census level specimen even without the crack. Both sides are fully lustrous and sharply defined, with mirrored fields beneath splendid gold and iridescent toning. An extremely important opportunity for the specialist, and possibly R.7 in this die state.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 24FG, PCGS# 6129)

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.
