Description1808 50C AU50 PCGS. O-108a, R.3. Stars 7 and 8 point between border dentils on Obverse 8. A short curl below the R in LIBERTY barely pierces the bottom edge of the cap below the actual headband. Reverse H has 50 C spaced three mm. apart. Only Obverse 1 of the overdate has a similar spacing, and only Obverse 10 of O-110 has a wider spacing. The reverse die was also used for O-109.
The obverse has heavy clash marks and the reverse is cracked through the tops of ED STATES OF AM.
This pleasing late die state pieces has considerable luster remaining on light pewter-gray surfaces. A hint of rose and lilac toning is present along the extreme outer borders. The surfaces are delightful and the overall eye appeal is excellent.

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.
