Both dies are perfect on this example, apparently as always. Unlike some, star 12 is sharp on this piece, perhaps alluding to an earlier die state.
Pewter-gray surfaces exhibit faint traces of lime, gold, and iridescent toning at the borders with some luster still present on the reverse. Both sides have a few minuscule scratches and contact marks that are the rule rather than the exception on these early coins.
This piece falls in the middle of the Condition Census, perhaps third or fourth finest, as there are multiple XF45 coins known. Its overall eye appeal and quality places it among the finest of the several XF45 coins 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.
