1809 50C III Edge AU53 PCGS....
This late die state piece requires careful examination to correctly record the obverse die cracks. The reverse is clashed with embossed segments and a rough die defect at the left outer edge of the C in 50C.
A highly lustrous piece with bright silver surfaces, this example has a few splashes of gold on the obverse. A few minor imperfections are entirely trivial. Although shy of the Condition Census, this example is probably in the top 20 for the variety.
Edge 52: CENTS OR HALF A DOLLAFRIFTY.
From The Donald R. Frederick Collection of Early U.S. Coinage: Bayside Part II.

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.
