1815/2 50C MS63 NGC....
Condition Census, MS63
The present coin is a well preserved and attractive specimen, struck from misaligned dies. The strike is quite sharp on the left side and the central details are crisp, but there is noticeable softness on the right-side stars and the corresponding area on the reverse. The coin is from an early die state, with multiple clash marks evident in the fields and vertical bars detected below the ear. Even shades of reddish-golden color enhance the surfaces. While population data may be skewed by resubmissions, coins at the MS63 level are rare. The coin offered here is tied for fourth place in Stephen Herrman's Condition Census for the date. Census: 6 in 63, 10 finer (4/09).

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.
