Formidable Gem 1828 Half Dollar
1828 50C Square Base 2, Large 8 MS65 NGC. O-108, R.3. One of
only two Overton varieties with both a Square Base 2 and Large 8s
in the date. The other marriage, O-109, is also listed as R.3 but
is decidedly more available in high grade, per Stephen J. Herrman's
spring 2010 edition of auction records. In fact, the present MS65
would rank #1 on Herrman's list for O-108, ahead of two MS64
examples. In addition, this half dollar is housed in a former
generation (early to mid-1990s) NGC holder. Thoroughly lustrous and
splendidly unabraded with a sharp strike, aside from minor
inexactness on the occasional star center.

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.
