This is a lovely coin for the grade with subdued frosted mint luster. The surfaces are free from any noticeable abrasions and there are only the tiniest marks visible with magnification. Sharply defined, the only weakness is on the centrils of the stars on the left side of the obverse. Mostly brilliant, there are occasional swirls of subdued gray-violet toning on both obverse and reverse. One of the finest examples of this scarce, early S-mint half available.

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.
