    1794 O-105 Half Dollar, Good 6
    Better Year Early Type Coin

    1794 50C O-105, T-3, R.5, Good 6 NGC. Tompkins Die State 1/1. A better die variety from the first year of the half dollar denomination, given that perhaps a majority of 1794 halves are T-7. All 15 stars are clear on the present piece, as well is the date and the peripheral reverse legend. The reverse has full dentilation, and the portrait displays inner hair detail. The central reverse is well worn, but the silver-gray surfaces show few abrasions aside from reverse adjustment marks.

    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.
