    Description

    1795 O-121a Half Dollar, VF Details
    Y Over Star, Late Die State

    1795 50C 2 Leaves, Y Over Star, O-121a, T-2, R.6 -- Repaired -- PCGS Genuine. VF Details.
    Tompkins Die State 3/1. Microporosity from a past cleaning and a narrow area of repair in the right obverse field account for the net PCGS grade. Slate-gray color at the centers gives way to charcoal-gray toning at the margins of this late die state O-121a. The Y of LIBERTY is punched over an errant star. While earlier die states are scarce in their own right, the late stage with a strong radial die crack that runs between 9 and 5 to Liberty's ear is rare (R.6). This near-terminal die state is always in demand among Overton variety collectors.

    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.
