    1806 O-109 Half Dollar, MS63
    Pointed 6, No Stem
    Colorful Toning

    1806 50C Pointed 6, No Stem, O-109, T-15, R.1, MS63 PCGS. CAC. Tompkins Die State 4/3, the latest die state of O-109 before the radial crack at star 12 appears, which is the diagnostic for the O-109a subvariety. This die state has a heavy die crack crack at the base of the date and beginnings of crumbling at the borders. Both sides of this Select example are toned in nearly concentric shades of turquoise and golden-rose. There are few appreciable surface marks, and only modest softness is noticed over the central devices. Although a common but popular die pairing that has long enjoyed a separate Guide Book listing, Mint State pieces are quite scarce.

    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.
