1809 50C III Edge AU50 PCGS....
Like the previous piece, this one is struck from nearly perfect dies. There are no die cracks or other die imperfections, other than faint clash marks.
Mostly brilliant silver-gray surfaces have a few splashes of gold, powder blue, and iridescent toning. Faint hairlines are present in addition to noticeable luster. Don Frederick notes that this piece is on an extra large planchet.

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.
