    1794 O-101, T-7 Half Dollar, VG8
    The Only 'Common' 1794 Variety

    1794 50C O-101, T-7, High R.3, VG8 PCGS. The O-101 is rated R.3 while all other 1794 die marriages are rated R.5 or higher. According to rarity ratings in Steve Tompkins' Early United States Half Dollars, between 500 and 600 1794 half dollars exist, including 300 to 400 examples of the O-101. This variety is ideal for the date collector or first-year type collector. The obverse die is perfect and the reverse die shows the initial crack through the F in OF, and the second crack from the rim to the leaves between the D and S. Pale blue and tan overtones appear on both sides of this light gray half dollar that exhibits trivial circulation marks as expected for the grade.

    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.
