This piece is deeply toned over fully mirrored fields with light cameo contrast. There are a few small planchet flakes and other insignificant blemishes on each side. The only pedigree marker is a short scratch from the left ribbon end to the bottom of E in UNITED. Certified population data is not meaningful for these early proofs as it does not always record data by individual varieties.

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.
