The coin is bright and completely devoid of any trace of toning. Most of the mint luster remains on the reverse and surrounds LIBERTY and the stars on the obverse. Well struck in the centers, except for the usual weakness on the eagle's head and upper reverse stars. This same area of weakness also shows a number of shallow roller marks that were not effaced in the striking process.
This scarcer die state is unrecorded in Herrman's Auction & Mail Bid Prices Realized above 40/40, which would seem to indicate that this piece is the finest O-104a currently 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.
