There are two design types of the Draped Bust Half Dollar – the small eagle reverse that runs for only two years (1796 and 1797) and the Heraldic Eagle Reverse that runs from 1801 thro 1807. Both were likely designed by Gilbert Stuart and engraved by Robert Scot with a weight of 13.48 grams, a 32.5 mm diameter with a lettered edge that reads either FIFTY CENTS OR HALF A DOLLAR with decorative design between the words. Many of the 1806 and 1807 Draped Bust Half Dollar are weakly struck. Coins that have eye appeal and/or better strikes will generally bring a better price. Well struck and high grade coins can be very difficult to find.
