1831 50C MS66 PCGS. CAC....
Finest Known of the O-111 Variety
This boldly lustrous Premium Gem piece is extremely well struck for the issue, although die erosion draws the peripheral elements toward the rims. Its overall eye appeal, however, is off the charts, with light silver-gray and champagne centers delicately tinged with iridescent blue and lilac. A couple of unobtrusive dotlike indentations on the lower bust are of no consequence. The finest known of this variety, listed in Herrman, August 2009. Population for the issue: 4 in 66, 0 finer (11/09).

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.
