The O-101 variety is distinguished by A2 touching the wing feathers, and by the presence of 13 arrows. This is the usual die state for the variety with a perfect obverse and rusted reverse. The reverse die has fine die rust visible through the legend near the border, along with a few heavier lumps: between ER, below the arrow butts, and below the left wing. The clash marks mentioned by Overton are not immediately evident on this piece.
This is a pleasing piece with deep gray-brown toning in the centers, surrounded by pale blue with hints of gold. Considerable luster is still visible, especially near the borders on each side. There are a few scattered surface marks on each side, including those near star 13 on the obverse. This example falls just below the Condition Census for the variety, ranking about sixth or seventh finest known.

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.
