1892-O Micro O, VF30
1892-O 50C Micro O, FS-501, VF30 PCGS. This
minuscule-mintmark variant is the key to the "With Varieties"
Barber half dollar set, and it has been known to collectors almost
since the day it was struck. It is listed in Augustus Heaton's
groundbreaking work Mint Marks, published in 1893. Four or
five shallow marks are noted on the obverse. The surfaces are
deeply toned overall with slightly lighter color over the devices.
The design elements are well brought up. This would be an excellent
choice for this rarity in an XF-AU set of Barber halves.
Population: 1 in 30, 17 finer (7/16).

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.
