    Near Mint 1806 O-109a Half, AU58

    1806 50C Pointed 6, No Stem AU58 NGC. O-109a, R.3. A large number of O-109 halves are known in all grade ranges, several of which are Uncirculated and high-end AU. Because of the large number of coins produced from this die pairing, die cracks are common and many were struck from rusted dies. This piece is struck from the later 'a' state of this die marriage. The obverse shows the signs of advanced die wear listed in Overton: heavy, horizontal die crack from star 12 to Liberty's neck, small lump broken out of the right base of 0 in the date, partial milling, and stars drawn to the edge. The reverse has most of the milling present with the "drawn" look at the top of the peripheral lettering.
    As with most AU58 early halves, this piece retains bright remnants of mint luster. The surfaces are covered with multiple layers of gray, rose, and sea-green toning. Well, but not fully struck, the highest portions of the design elements are silvery-gray from slight friction.
    While this later die state is scarcer than the regular 109, numerous Mint State and AU coins are known. The coins at the AU58 level are just outside the Condition Census.

    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.
