    1794 Flowing Hair Half Dollar, Fine 12
    Better O-104 Variety, Middle Die Stage

    1794 50C O-104, T-11, R.5, Fine 12 PCGS. Tompkins Die State 1/3. A full cud exists at the border above E and R of AMERICA to confirm the late stage of the reverse die, partially satisfying the Overton diagnostic for O-104a. The heavy die break across the obverse has yet to form, so technically this is still an O-104 coin, despite the O-104a designation on the previous generation PCGS holder. Attractive olive-gray patina gains intensity at the margins. The date is sharp, as are the other devices on both sides. Some minimal adjustment marks remain among the lower-right stars.
    Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 2/2018), lot 3843.

    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.
