    1827/6 O-102 Half Dollar, MS64
    Important Guide Book Overdate

    1827/6 50C O-102, R.1, MS64 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The overdate obverse die is paired with three different reverses. Overton-102 shows a die flaw near the final A in AMERICA and is the most plentiful overdate variety. Nonetheless, in high grade this issue is conditionally rare. The present coin is one of just a dozen near-Gem examples known for all three overdate varieties combined. The central devices are sharp, and only a few peripheral stars are weak in their centers. Original olive and amber toning appears in the margins, leaving the interiors pearl-white. Population (all overdate varieties): 12 in 64 (2 in 64+), 5 finer (9/20).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 24FP, Variety PCGS# 39752, Base PCGS# 6147)

    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.
