Sharp 1795 O-126a Half, VF Details1795 50C Small Head--Corroded, Improperly Cleaned--NCS. VF Details. O-126a, High R.4. The obverse appears to have a crack from the left top of E to the border over B, although it is possible that this may actually be a result of the surface quality and not a die defect. The reverse has the usual crack through the lower left part of the wreath.
Light gray color at the centers gradually changes to deeper gray-brown near the borders. Both sides have finely distributed porosity over most of the surfaces. The impression is nicely centered with full borders on each side.

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.
