Enticing 1892-O Half, MS66
Only Two Finer PCGS Coins Graded
1892-O 50C MS66 PCGS Secure. CAC. Ex: Duckor. The obverse is lightly cracked from the upper right side of the 2 across the bust point to star 13. The mintmark is centered below the tail feathers and leans sharply to the left.
The sharp strike provides excellent design definition on both sides, and it is much finer than usually seen on this issue. Most of the obverse leaves show their central detail, and the hair above Liberty's forehead is similarly bold. The shield is fully outlined and detailed, and the feathers are bold. The reverse leaves are also sharp. Only the eagle's claws lack strong definition.
Both sides have frosty, lustrous silver surfaces. The obverse exhibits considerable lavender-gray toning with a few splashes of blue and green at the border. The reverse has less lavender and more blue and green toning, with additional russet and gold hues. Surface marks on each side are minimal and only visible with 5x or greater magnification. To the naked eye, this example is pristine.
This conditionally rare, low-mintage, first-year half dollar has just the right combination of desirability factors to ensure constant heightened demand. The mintage of 390,000 coins is the lowest production of any branch mint Barber half and the fourth lowest in the entire series. For the connoisseur, the present example is one of just three coins that PCGS has graded MS66, with one MS67 and one MS68. Population (6/10): MS66 (3); MS66+ (0); MS67 (1); MS67+ (0); MS68 (1).
Ex: David Akers (10/5/1994).

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.
