Reflective surfaces are visible beneath variegated gray, rose, sea-green, and lilac toning on both sides. The strike is typically weak at the drapery and right facing wing. A few minor scrapes and abrasions are evident on each side, including a thin, shallow mark on Liberty's neck.
A rarity in higher grades, and the present piece ranks third finest overall for the O-111 die marriage.

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.
