Description:
Superb Gem 1892-O Barber Half Dollar from the T. Price Collection
1892-O 50C MS68 NGC. This monumental coin hails from the T. Price collection. Liberty and the devices are deeply frosted and this coin appears to be a proof at first glance. Toned with a halo of peripheral gold with a few flecks of blue on the upper rim, perfectly matched on the reverse. Fully struck on the obverse and nearly so on the reverse, with a trace of weakness on the claws of the eagle. Outstanding surfaces and eye appeal for any date, especially so on this key coin. The mintage for the year halted after a mere 390,000 coins were struck. A few were saved as the first year of issue, but most entered circulation. This issue commands attention and demands diligent searching for any example above the VF grade level. This particular coin was obviously set aside from the day it was struck and very carefully preserved. One simply cannot imagine a more perfect specimen of this date. Furthermore, NGC and PCGS combined have graded a total of two specimens this high, and of course, none are finer. NGC even awarded the coveted "star" to the holder for high eye appeal. The other MS68 example graded by NGC does not have the "star" designation. Therefore one can claim that the present coin is the finest known, and it certainly has claims to be the finest graded of this date.(#6462) (Registry values: N10218) (NGC ID# 24LG, PCGS# 6462)

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.
