    Late State 1803 O-102 Half Dollar

    1803 50C Large 3. O-102a, High R.3. Fine 12 NGC. A short die line extends downward from the bottom of D in UNITED, below the right edge of the upright, and this confirms the variety.

Well centered and nicely defined for the grade, except that the eagle's left facing wing and the upper left part of the shield are devoid of detail. The surfaces have excellent light to medium gray color with hints of peach on the devices.

    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.
