Description:
1897-O Half Dollar, MS66
Key Series Issue in High Grade
1897-O 50C MS66 NGC. The 1897-O Barber half is one of the key issues from the first decade of the series, struck in the amount of only 632,000 pieces, and series specialists eagerly seek examples in all grades. This Premium Gem is one of only seven such certified between NGC and PCGS combined. There is one MS68 NGC piece numerically finer, and PCGS shows one MS66+, two MS67, and one MS68 finer (7/13). This piece shows satin luster over lightly toned surfaces with traces of gold and powder-gray accenting much untoned silver-gray area remaining. A loupe reveals a thin scrape through the left shield border on the reverse, and an obverse mark angling up from the forward bust truncation on the neck. The obverse show light clash marks. This piece should be the subject of spirited bidding.
From The Owen Collection, Part I.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 24LZ, PCGS# 6478)

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.
