1796 50C 16 Stars
This is a pleasing, problem-free piece for the grade. The surfaces are original with a two-toned appearance, the fields and recesses of the coin being darker in hue while the highpoints of the design have light steel-gray appearance. Well centered and well defined for the grade with no mentionable abrasions on either side--this is as fine a 1796 half as one is going to locate in this grade range.
From the Collection of Dr. Joseph M. Seventko. (NGC ID# 24EA, PCGS# 6058)

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.
