1805/4 O-103a Half Dollar, AU55
1805/4 50C AU55 NGC. CAC. O-103a, High R.5. Ex: "Col."
E.H.R. Green. A lovely album-toned coin, the Newman specimen has
ivory centers with concentric rings of iridescent deep blue to
bright orange. Light gray high points clearly show the area of wear
on this lovely half dollar. Only a glass reveals minute slide marks
on Liberty's cheek.
Finest of the Die State
Perhaps three dozen examples of this rare die marriage survive, including three Choice AU examples that vie for the three top spots in the condition census. This example is a mid to late die state with die cracks from the border below star 1 and through star 2, both meeting at the third hair curl. The area between the cracks appears slightly raised in the form of a retained cud.. This impressive piece is the finest of its die state as the two other high grade coins are early die states that lack the charismatic triangular die break.

A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
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.
