Sheraton Inner Harbor
Intermediate Stage of O-101a
Light to medium gray patination dominates both sides, each of which exhibits subtle golden undertones and hints of luster in some of the protected areas. Liberty's hair is nicely delineated, as is a good portion of the drapery. The reverse design elements are also quite sharp, save for the typical softness on the eagle's breast, neck, and legs. Relatively strong dentilation is apparent on both sides, and no adjustment marks are evident on either. The reverse is remarkably clean, while the obverse reveals a few light marks, including a shallow hairline scratch across the neckline that does not detract from the overall appearance.
This is an attractive coin that will fit comfortably in a high quality type or date/variety collection.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 24EC, PCGS# 6060)

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.
