Mint State 1817/3 Half Dollar1817/3 50C MS61 NGC. O-101a, R.2. Mint State overdate Bust Halves always command the respect of bidders at major auctions, and we expect that it will be no different with this BU quality example. The strike is average for the type with the reverse a little sharper than the obverse. Streaks of tan colored patina overlay the otherwise slate-gray surfaces. The obverse is a little lighter in appearance, but both sides are free of an excessive number of distractions. There is a moderate planchet flaw (as produced) over the middle of Liberty's portrait. (NGC ID# 24F7, PCGS# 6111)

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.
