Description1807 50C Capped Bust, Small Stars XF45 PCGS. O-113a, R.3. Obverse 10 has small stars that are clearly separated. Reverse I has 50 C widely spaced with the C entirely under the right (facing) claw. Don Frederick notes that the lower right curve of the O in OF is recut.
This late die state piece has additional obverse and reverse cracks that are unlisted in the fourth edition of Overton, as well as clash marks that are heavier on the reverse.
Light heather-gray surfaces exhibit violet, rose, gold, and turquoise-blue toning that deepens near the borders. Splashes of tan are evident on the worn areas of the design. A few faint hairlines are visible through the toning, but are entirely trivial.
Ex: Bowers and Ruddy (2/1977), lot 395 as "EF-AU."

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.
