1829/7 Half, Lavishly Toned Gem O-1011829/7 50C MS65 PCGS. CAC. O-101, R.1. Recutting shows on all four digits in the date, with the overdate marked by remnants of the bases of the original 27 beneath the subsequent 29. This obverse is paired with a reverse die showing a long, curved flag atop the 5 in the denomination -- one of three uses in the year, along with O-106 and O-107. The reverse die is not yet far enough along in die lapping to diagnose the later O-101a state.
This is a splendid Gem of this available but popular overdate, lavishly toned in stunning hues. Both sides display concentric rings of amber and sky-blue near the rims, bounding centers that offer rose, gold, and lilac color. For the 1829/7, Population: 5 in 65, 2 finer (10/12).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 24FT, PCGS# 6155)

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.
