Draped Bust coin types have two different reverses. The Draped Bust Half Dollars had a "Small Eagle" reverse from 1796-97 then it was changed to the "Heraldic Eagle" or Eagle and Shield reverse. Each have their own grading characteristics and both are sample in the images below, so keep that in mind when grading Draped Bust Half Dollars.
