Finest Known O-110 1824/4 Half Dollar1824/4 50C MS66 NGC. O-110, R.2. On this later die state, the top of the 4 is barely visible to the left of the top of the prominent 4. This is undoubtedly the finest known example as the Condition Census in Overton's third edition is listed as (65, 65, 65, 64, 62). This exceptional coin is crisply detailed in the centers with the usual softness (as seen on this variety) on the peripheral stars. The surfaces are obviously original and each side is covered with dusky gray patina and the devices are encircled with rich golden color. Strong mint luster underlies the toning and is a dominant feature on this finest known O-110 half dollar. Population: 2 in 66, 0 finer (4/03). (NGC ID# 24FK, PCGS# 6140)

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.
