    1795 Two Leaves Half Dollar, VF25
    O-119, Ex: Norweb

    1795 50C 2 Leaves, O-119, T-1, R.4, VF25 PCGS. CAC. Tompkins Die State 4/1. A die lump above star 15 and a die scratch near the right wingtip confirm this scarce variety. Deep lavender-gray toning shrouds each side of this smooth, problem-free Flowing Hair half dollar. The strike is strong and well-centered with a touch of indistinctness at the upper obverse and lower reverse borders. Adjustment marks appear on the rim above LIB. Small pedigree marks in the right obverse field have made and will continue to make identification of this piece possible. Housed in an old green label holder.
    Ex: Norweb Collection, Part III (Bowers and Merena, 11/1988), lot 3022. The cataloger from that sale noted that this coin was purchased by Albert Fairchild Holden from the James B. Wilson Collection (Thomas Elder, 10/1908), possibly lot 230.
    From The Hamilton Collection. (NGC ID# 24E7, Variety PCGS# 39236, Base PCGS# 6052)

    The Draped Bust Half Dollars of 1796-1797 by Jon Amato

    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.
