1813 50C AU58 PCGS....
This amazing near-Mint example has a trace of high point wear, along with frosty silver brilliance and virtually full mint luster. The peripheral details are weak, but the central design motifs are bold. The finest piece listed in Herrman's record is the MS63 Overton plate coin. After that, a single AU58 and two AU55 examples are the best that have been auction in recent years. This example from the Frederick Collection is easily in the O-104 Census, and is probably fairly high in rank.
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.
