1852 50C MS67 NGC....
Fully struck throughout, the surfaces are brilliant and highly lustrous with a frosted sheen over both obverse and reverse. As one would expect from a coin of this grade, there are no obvious abrasions on either side. The only remarkable features are both Mint-made, an area of partial die polish in the field to the left of the rock on the obverse, and several die striations in the reverse field above HALF DOL. Breathtaking quality.

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.
