Lustrous Gem 1809 Half Dollar, O-1031809 50C Normal Edge MS65 NGC. O-103, R.1. Dr. Glenn Peterson identifies this marriage by the tine above the inner point of star 5. Jade-green, golden-brown, and steel-gray toning adorns this lustrous Gem. Sharply struck throughout the margins, while the eagle's head and the curl above the clasp show moderate incompleteness. Smooth overall with only minor contact noted above Liberty's eyebrow, left of the 1 in the date, and on the field beneath the scroll. An outstanding example of this early Capped Bust date. 1809 halves are known with experimental edges, but the present piece appears to have the usual edge. Census: 8 in 65, 3 finer (3/10).

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.
