Orange County Convention Center
This piece is fully lustrous with light silver surfaces that are framed by wispy rose toning at the borders. Only slight signs of wear can be seen on either side. The strike is sharp with excellent centering that incorporates full obverse and reverse borders. It is a delightful example for both its high quality and aesthetic appeal.
Although the recently published fourth edition of Overton provides a Condition Census of 61, 45, 45, 40, 35, we believe the true Census includes a small number of better pieces. The Westmoreland County specimen almost certainly ranks in the top half dozen specimens known, probably fourth or fifth finest.

Service and Handling Description: Coins & Currency (view shipping information)
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.
