Description:
1892 Barber Half Dollar, Richly Toned MS65
1892 50C MS65 PCGS. CAC. Many 1892 half dollars (934,000 business strike mintage) were saved as the first-year-of-issue. David Lawrence (1991) says that in Mint State, the 1892 is the most common date of the series. Indeed, PCGS and NGC have certified several hundred Uncirculated examples, primarily from MS60 to MS64. Fantastic luster radiates from both sides of this marvelous Gem, and sharp definition is apparent on the design features, except for the usually-seen softness on the upper-right corner of the shield. Light olive-green toning on the obverse is replaced by deeper olive-green, lavender, and electric-blue on the reverse. A few grade-consistent marks are well-concealed within the toning.
Ex: Central States Signature (Heritage, 5/2007), lot 835.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 24LF, PCGS# 6461)

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.
