1796 Draped Bust Half Dollar. Small Eagle. O-101, T-1. Rarity-5-. 15 Stars. EF Details--Repaired (PCGS).Offered is a desirable Extremely Fine example of a classic rarity among early U.S. Mint half dollar design types. Plenty of bold to sharp striking detail remains to the major design elements, and the strike is well centered with uniformly denticulated borders around both sides. Mentionable softness is confined to the upper right obverse periphery, affecting the letters TY in LIBERTY, and the lower right reverse, where the clouds are soft and the letters CA in AMERICA are difficult to discern at some viewing angles. There is a muted, somewhat matte-like texture, the surfaces retoned in dominant steel-mauve with lighter olive-gray intermingled on the obverse. The appearance is remarkably smooth with no sizable marks; provenance concerns compel us to mention a tiny nick between star 3 and the obverse border, as well as another in the field between the lower left corner of the letter B in LIBERTY and the end of the hair wave atop Libertys head. There are fewer than 100 different examples of the O-101 die marriage believed extant. The specimen offered here is included in the census of known examples published by Jon P. Amato (<em>The Draped Bust Half Dollars of 1796-1797</em>, 2012), where it is listed with coin serial number 123. Tompkins Die Stage 5/2.<p>The half dollars that the United States Mint delivered in 1797 differed from those of 1794 and 1795. In late 1796 Mint personnel adopted Robert Scots Draped Bust, Small Eagle design that had already been featured on 1795-dated silver dollars for use on the half dollar. The delivery of 1797 amounted to just 3,918 pieces, 1,934 or so examples having been struck from one of two 1796-dated obverse dies. Surprisingly for a denomination that otherwise proved extremely popular with contemporary bullion depositors, no more half dollars were ordered until 1801, at which time the Heraldic Eagle variant of the Draped Bust type became current. The Draped Bust, Small Eagle half dollar, therefore, became an instant numismatic rarity - a two-year type with a combined mintage of just 3,918 pieces. Survivors of both dates are scarce to rare in all grades, and they never fail to cause a stir among advanced collectors when they appear at auction.PCGS# 6057.
