Description:
Amazing 1901-O Half, MS67+
No Other PCGS Examples Above MS66
1901-O 50C MS67+ PCGS Secure. Ex: Duckor/Akers. The obverse has a series of peripheral die cracks through the date, stars, and tops of LIBERTY. The reverse also has several peripheral die cracks, although somewhat lighter. The mintmark is slightly right of center and close to the tail feathers.
Slight strike weakness is noted on the reverse. However, this Superb Gem is more sharply defined than any other example we have encountered. The obverse has exceptional design definition, with full stars and hair detail, a sharp band, and excellent leaf definition. Some feathers are indistinct on the eagle, including those at the base of the right wing. The right side of the shield is also weak, as are the right facing claw and arrow feathers. Both sides are highly lustrous and brilliant, with delicate champagne, gold, and iridescent toning. A few insignificant surface marks are only visible with magnification.
The 1901-O Barber half dollar is one of the major rarities in the series. It has the third-lowest PCGS Mint State population behind the 1892 Micro O and the 1896-O issues. A review of our Permanent Auction Archives show just two MS66 specimens in our past sales. The Duckor specimen is finer than any we have sold. It is clearly finer than the Eliasberg and Emery-Nichols specimen, both coins that came directly from the New Orleans Mint in 1901. Population (6/10): MS66 (2); MS66+ (0); MS67 (0); MS67+ (1).
Ex: Stack's (5/1961), lot 1196; Stack's (1/1991), lot 1196; David Akers (2/2/1994).

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.
