1850 50C PR64 NGC....
Dappled cobalt-blue and russet patina races over luminous surfaces, and a solid strike leaves bold definition on the design elements. Only the left (facing) claw exhibits minor softness. A few minute marks preclude Gem classification; we mention the following solely for pedigree purposes: a milling mark in the right obverse field, a series of horizontal ticks on Liberty's abdomen, and a couple of grazes at the left (facing) elbow. A magnificent representative of this important rarity. Census: 2 in 64, 1 finer (6/09).
From The Bay State Collection, Part Two. (PCGS# 6394)

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.
