    Rare Two Year Type

    1796 50c PCGS F12 (15 Stars) ex: Hansen Collection

    Next Bid: $46,500.00
    Closes: 14D 4H

    The Draped Bust, Small Eagle half dollars of 1796 and 1797 have long been considered rarities of the U.S. half dollar series, joined together by both their low, combined mintage of 3,918 pieces, as well as by their status as a two-year design type. Mint records note that all of the coins dated 1796 were struck and delivered in 1797. Beyond that, actual mintages for the different issues are just educated guesses. Approximately half of the mintage was dated 1796, and the other half 1797. A tough coin to locate in any state, this piece is bested by a VF30 that resides in the primary collection of Hansen coins.

    This coin is as fresh as pineapple in Hawaii! Amazingly clean fields with stunning originality, this coin was freshly graded from a collection put together in the early 1900s. A truly special piece, I would put it up against the other examples graded similarly as possibly the nicest overall. It is also the finest graded of the variety O-115a, but we'll leave all of that aside and just state it as an extremely special coin that is deserving of all of the attention it might get. CAC approved for quality.
