    1829 Half Dollar, O-108, PR64
    The Finest Seen at PCGS

    1829 50C PR64 PCGS. O-108, R.8 as a Proof. Gold CAC. Attributed by die lines between the end of the bust and the edge (these show only on the early die states), the right side of I in PLURIBUS centered under the second T of STATES, 5 in the denomination higher than 0 and tilted to left, C tilted sharply to left, and the 5 recut at the top.

    The PCGS website estimates that six to eight 1829 half dollar proofs are known. PCGS has certified a PR62 and a PR64 (the present coin), while NGC has graded two PR63s, two PR65s, a PR66, an SP63 and an SP64.

    The mirrored fields of the present offering yield modest contrast with the devices at various angles, somewhat more so on the reverse, and the untoned centers cede to splashes of deep gunmetal-blue, lavender, and orange-gold at the margins. The design features are well-struck, with the stars around the left border slightly stronger than those along the right margin, boldness in the gown and cap folds and most of Liberty's hair, and strong detail on the eagle's wing and neck feathers and horizontal stripes on the shield. The typical softness is noted in the lines of the vertical stripes, the arrow feathers, and the right (facing) claw. Most of the dentilation is bold, and the devices are well centered on the planchet. Both sides are devoid of mentionable contact marks, and just an occasional faint hairline in the fields keeps this piece from full Gem status. We mention a minuscule milling mark in the center of Liberty's neck solely for identification purposes. Housed in a first generation holder. Population: 1 in 64, 0 finer (11/13).

    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.
