1807 O. 109' R6+ Draped Bust half dollar, PCGS VG8, sweet orig! DavidKahnRareCoins
109' R6+ (Tompkins-2, see below) Draped Bust half dollar, PCGS VG8. Here is one for the die state collectors. This is a prime die state (the earliest known die state) showing no die cracks. The coin itself is a very pleasing, perfectly original example of this popular, last-year-of-issue date. These are known for shallow, uneven strikes, from well-used, severely cracked dies, but this one was clearly struck well. The smoothness of the surfaces, the exceptionally pleasing, totally intact, antique patina is lovely, and the coin's eye appeal is excellent. There aren't many of these to go around. In over 35 years of specializing in Bust half dollars, we've never handled one before. There is a relatively new book available on this series, and your library should absolutely have 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. We have just a few copies left in stock, so please see out website to order yours! DavidKahnRareCoins is your source for scarce, rare and high-quality collector coins.
