Dazzling Near-Gem 1817 Fifty Cent, O-113a1817 50C MS64 NGC. O-113a, R.4. A scarce die marriage that is rarely encountered in near-Gem condition. Steve Herrman's Prices Realized for Bust Half Dollars (Autumn 2007) reveals that only two MS64 examples of this variety have crossed the auction block in the past 10 years, and only six Uncirculated pieces have been sold during the same period, regardless of numerical grade. Gleaming luster rolls across remarkably clean fields. One tick on Liberty's breast and a couple within the eagle's shield are all that apparently kept this coin from receiving a higher grading opinion by NGC. Census: 20 in 64, 10 finer, all varieties combined (12/07).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 24F6, PCGS# 6109)
Weight: 13.48 grams
Metal: 89.24% Silver, 10.76% Copper

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.
