    Pleasing 1795 O-119 Half Dollar, XF45

    1795 50C 2 Leaves XF45 NGC. O-119, R.4. On the obverse, the diagnostic elongated die defect lump is visible above the point of star 15 and the point of the bust, and the die crack seen on most specimens from the edge through star 15 to the bust is only apparent between the edge and lower star point on this example. On the reverse, the I in UNITED is recut, a die defect line extends from the tip of the left (right facing) wing to the top-right of the E in AMERICA, and another travels straight out from the wing tip to join a defect line from the top left serif of the R in AMERICA.
    Light silver-gray patination, imbued with traces of powder-blue and lilac, covers semi-bright surfaces. The design elements display relatively sharp delineation, particularly in Liberty's hair strands, and on most of the eagle's wing, tail, and leg plumage. The dentils are complete on both sides. A few light circulation marks are consistent with the grade, and faint adjustment marks are noted around portions of the obverse border.
    Haseltine-9; Beistle 9b-Na; Overton-44; Hilt 8-F; PCGS# 6052; Encyclopedia-4555.
    Ex: Harry Laibstain (2/2002).

    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.
