Description

In this exciting new hardbound work, you will find over 500 pages covering each known die marriage for the years 1794-1807. This is surrounded by sections covering design, manufacture, new theories, and explanations for why certain things were done, based on Mint documentation and evidence found on the coins themselves. Included are quick finding charts and pictorial identifiers for each year; detailed listings of die stages; as well as, oversized color photos of every die marriage. New updated rarity ratings are included, as well as pedigrees & pictorial condition census for all R-6 to R-8 rated die marriages.

Every die marriage is now listed in emission sequence (the order they were struck in) and therefore a new numbering system was needed and was incorporated, with a handy conversion chart in both the front and back of the book for ease in transition from the older designations.

The appendices contain interesting information on many things, among those are: patterns; die trials; private re-strikes; error coins; counterstamps; etc.; along with many useful charts; die re-marriage listings; master die/hub listings; reproductions of original Mint documents; and much, much more!!

This is the first volume of several that will cover the entire lettered edge half dollar series from 1794 through 1836.
