Description

    Important Late State 1824 O-112a Half, AU50

    1824 50C AU50 PCGS. O-112a, R.4. The first line of stripe 6 in the shield extends to the fourth crossbar, diagnostic for the variety.
    An obverse die crack begins at the border right of the date, crosses the low curl and bust, and curves up to star 4 and the border. The crack is heavy at first, and weakens in the left field above the bust.
    A splendid AU example, this piece exhibits brilliant silver luster with vivid peripheral gold toning. A highly attractive, appealing example of the scarce O-112a variety. The most recent auction appearance of a late die state example, according to Stephen Herrman, was January 2006 when we sold the VF20 Jules Reiver coin.
    From The Donald R. Frederick Collection of Early U.S. Coinage: Bayside Part II.

    The Draped Bust Half Dollars of 1796-1797 by Jon Amato

    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.
