III Edge 1809 Half Dollar, XF Details1809 50C III Edge--Improperly Cleaned--NCS. XF Details. O-107A. R.4. The variety is attributed correctly, but the date is misidentified on the NCS label as 1808 rather than 1809. Pleasing gunmetal gray toning with delicate pink, blue, and gold iridescent highlights. Magnification reveals a few faint mint-caused adjustment marks on Liberty's hair tresses and cap, something that's virtually invisible without magnification. Perhaps the most distinctive feature of the obverse is a heavy die break that extends from the rim between stars eleven and twelve to the back of Liberty's hair. On the reverse, dentil-shaped clash marks can be seen underneath ERICA in AMERICA. The "III Edge" feature is not noted on the NCS label.

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.
