Description1812/1 50C Small 8 AU55 NGC. Ex: Jules Reiver Collection. O-102, R.2. This example is well struck for the issue, despite some weakness that draws the peripheral devices toward the borders, on each side. Nearly as lustrous as a Mint State coin should be, this example is mostly untoned, but reveals a faint degree of purple-rose color in the upper left obverse field, and slight amounts of sky-blue and russet toning near some of the obverse and reverse peripheries. Reiver's collector envelope included.

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.
