The example in Don's collection - that actual discovery coin - served him well for roughly 30 years until his death, and was only a strong Fine with 3 X's scratched on the surfaces. The finest known of this rare variety appears to be a VF25 coin. If you are holding out for a gem XF or better example, the wait is likely to be very long, and you'll have to rely on being first in line if such a coin is ever discovered. The coin we are offering is scratched, yes, but it's rare, and is otherwise quite nice and pleasing! There is a brand new book available on this series, and your library should absolutely include a copy.
Steve Tompkins has produced a complete, ground-up re-write of Overton, entitled, "Early United States Half Dollars, Volume 1, 1794 - 1807". This is the first of a planned series of 3 or more volumes covering the entire lettered edge half dollar series, but it is the only one that is ready to go. The book is magnificent - over 500 pages, in full color, and with information galore that is not readily available elsewhere.
