    Description

    1795/1795 3 Leaves Flowing Hair Half, VF20
    O-111, Sole 3 Leaves Die Pair
    Distinctive Overton Variety

    1795/1795 50C 3 Leaves, O-111, High R.4, VF20 NGC. The dramatic, 1795/1795 overdate appears on both the Overton O-111 and O-112 varieties, but only O-111 pairs it with the distinctive and highly desired Three Leaves reverse. Characterized by a bold, curving die break and sinking of the lower-left quadrant of the reverse, the three-leaves feature and adjacent motifs are always appear higher in grade than the surrounding, more-exposed surfaces. Often seen only in impaired condition, the variety exceeds its numeric rarity rating because of the intense demand from variety and type collectors. Original, attractive examples such as this coin are seldom available. The coin is thoroughly original with old silver-gray patina and lighter silver tones on the higher devices. Sharply detailed and appealing, the most noticeable marks include a toned-over scrape in the field near Liberty's forehead and some light, criss-crossing adjustment marks in the upper obverse fields and margins. (NGC ID# 24E7, Variety PCGS# 39245, Base PCGS# 6053)

    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.

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
