Description:

Striking 1895-O Half, MS67
An Incredible Example
1895-O 50C MS67 PCGS Secure. CAC. Ex: Duckor/Akers. The reverse has a faint die crack through the tops of UNI and another through the bottoms of DOLLAR. Otherwise, both dies are perfect, with no other die cracks, clash marks, lapping, or other defects. The mintmark leans slightly to the left, and it is close to the eagle's tail, a trifle right of center.
This boldly detailed piece ranks among the sharpest struck New Orleans half dollars of any date that the cataloger has ever encountered. It is sharper than the Dale Friend coin, also graded MS67 PCGS, a coin that garnered remarks about its strong strike.
Both sides have intense mint frost that shines brightly through the gorgeous original toning. The obverse blends gold and ivory at the center, gradually changing to sea-green and light yellow-gold. A diagonal line of darker toning through star 11 will serve as a convenient provenance marker. The reverse has lovely reddish-gold, intermingled with steel-blue and light green. Trivial marks on each side are hardly worth mentioning.
This piece is only the second MS67 PCGS 1895-O that we have ever offered, following the Friend Collection coin. Those two coins are the only examples that PCGS has certified in Superb Gem, tied for the finest known examples of the date. Population (6/10): MS66 (3); MS66+ (0); MS67 (2).
Ex: David Akers (8/16/1995).
From The Dr. and Mrs. Steven L. Duckor Barber Half Dollar Collection.

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.
