Description1809 50C Normal Edge AU55 PCGS. O-103, R.1. Ex: Frederick Collection. Raised spines in the field near several stars, especially stars 5, 11, and 12, identify Obverse 3. The reverse has a long die line extending the top of the shield well into the right wing. The obverse die appeared first on O-104, next on O-105, and finally on O-103.
The obverse has a faint die crack from the base of 18 to the drapery and on to star 1. The heavy peripheral flowlines obscure the crack. There are no obvious reverse die cracks, but the entire die is well worn with the appearance of die rust over much of its surfaces.
This Choice AU piece is a lovely specimen with nearly full frosty luster. Both sides have light silver-gray color with attractive peripheral gold toning. The drapery clasp and other central obverse devices are weak as usual for the variety.(Registry values: N991) (NGC ID# 24ES, PCGS# 6092)

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.
