    1806 Half Dollar, O-111, AU53
    6 Over Inverted 6

    1806 50C 6 Over Inverted 6, O-111, T-11, R.3, AU53 PCGS. Tompkins Die State 3/3. The 6 in the date is punched over an earlier, upside-down six punch. Two varieties employ this obverse. The O-111 reverse is distinguished by the positioning of the border legends relative to the devices. On this coin, a retained cud above the E in UNITED clearly identifies the O-111 die pair. Mottled gold and sea-green toning covers partially lustrous surfaces that show little wear. The lower portion of Liberty's bust and the tip of the eagle's right (facing) wing show mentionable strike softness, as do the border stars.

    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.
