Description

1873 Open 3, No Arrows Half
Original Fair 2 Example

1873 50C Open 3, No Arrows Fair 2 NGC. CAC. WB-101. The year 1873 was a transitional one for the Mint with the focus clearly on the new design with arrowheads on each side of the date. There were 214,200 pieces struck of the No Arrows half with the Open 3 in the date; however, examples are extremely rare with many melted after July 10. This is a heavily worn, but original example. The fields are medium gray with contrasting reddish-tinged brilliance over the devices. Each side presents an interesting study of wear patterns. Obviously the obverse wore quicker than the reverse, which still shows some of the rim. A few grade-consistent marks are noted, mostly on the obverse.(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 24KB, PCGS# 6337)

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.
