1824 50C Overdate AU58 PCGS....
A nearly complete double profile is noted. Light clash marks are evident on both sides, and the reverse has flowlines that extend the letters to the border.
This piece is highly attractive with traces of wear on the high points. The surfaces have frosty silver luster with ivory color and beautiful rainbow toning at the obverse border. The Frederick specimen may rank among the top 10 or 12 examples of this variety.
Ex: Jim O'Donnell (10/1985).

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.
