The usual late die state with obverse and reverse die cracks. The obverse has a crack from the border to outer left curve of the 0, continuing into the hair curls and terminating in a large triangular die break just below the hair ribbon. Another crack begins at that die chip and extends through the hair curls to the B in LIBERTY and the border at 11:30. Additional obverse cracks, if they are present, are extremely faint. The reverse has all of the cracks described for O-102a.
This lovely AU53 example has lustrous pewter gray surfaces with attractive gold toning on each side. Traces of high point wear show a natural tan color. A few trivial marks are evident in the upper reverse field.
From The Donald R. Frederick Collection of Early U.S. Coinage: Bayside Part II.(Registry values: N991) (NGC ID# 24EP, PCGS# 6090)

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.
