Description:
1894 Superb Gem Barber Half
Deep Patina Interspersed Overall
1894 50C MS67 PCGS. CAC. The Barber coins were collectively a workhorse of American commerce. Although struck for only around 20 years, these coins remained in circulation decades after the designs were replaced. Examples can be found in all circulated grades, but the number of Mint State survivors is minuscule compared to the total mintage -- a testament to the wide use of these coins. This well-preserved half is deeply toned in hues of deep blue and red, the depth of color partially subduing the underlying mint luster. The strike is sharp throughout.
The population data is misleading because most circulated Barber coins can be acquired for low prices (sometimes little more than melt value) and therefore do not benefit from certification. The 1894 is easily located in low Mint State grades, and the median grade at NGC and PCGS falls between MS63 and MS64. In higher grades, however, the 1894 can be quite challenging. This MS67 specimen is truly remarkable, and is the second finest 1894 half dollar certified by the two major grading services (7/11). (An MS67+ at PCGS takes top honors.) This stunning Superb Gem would make a perfect addition to a high-grade Barber half set.

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.
