The surfaces have deep grayish-gold color with darker steel at the peripheries. Splashes of pale blue and iridescent toning are evident on both sides.
Three obverse dies are designated as "Small Head" dies, and they are quickly recognized by a thin shoulder loop or truncation line directly below the shoulder adjacent to its juncture with the lower hair detail. Robert Hilt attributed these dies to John Smith Gardner, who assisted Robert Scot in the engraving department. The Small Head varieties are O-126, 127, and 128, and they deserve a separate listing in the Guide Book.

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.
