1826 O-118a Half Dollar, MS66
1826 50C MS66 NGC. CAC. O-118a, R.1. The reverse has die
cracks through the tops of NITED STATES and MERICA on this late die
state Premium Gem. Stephen J. Herrman lists three similar examples
in his auction survey, two MS66 NGC specimens and one MS66 PCGS
example. This example is the piece he lists as O-118 based on the
July 2008 Stack's description, where they failed to mention the die
state. The three finest certified examples are all properly
attributed as O-118a.
Late Die State
Both sides have vibrant mint luster with satin surfaces and sharp design motifs, with lovely violet and light blue peripheral toning that accents the golden surfaces, creating excellent eye appeal. Census: 19 in 66, 5 finer (3/13), for all 1826 varieties.

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.
