Noteworthy PR62 O-113 1825 Half Dollar1825 50C PR62 PCGS. O-113, R.1, R.7 as a proof. The fields are decidedly reflective and show no indication of cartwheel luster. The portrait is well struck, although peripheral details such as the stars and claws are incompletely brought up. Attractively toned in deep powder-blue and rose-gold.
We know of few other proof O-113 halves. One appeared as lot 364 in a 3/1990 Stack's sale, earlier in a 2/1971 Lester Merkin's auction. The Queller Family example was described as a specimen strike in a 10/2002 Stack's auction, and as a proof in the 1/1974 Stack's auction. PCGS has certified a second example as PR62, but no others are certified. Certainly, it could be many years before the opportunity to acquire a proof O-113 arrives again. Housed in a first generation holder. Population: 2 in 62, 0 finer (4/08).
Ex: Boys Town Sale (Superior, 5/1990), lot 3796.

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.
