Tied for Second Finest Behind the Eliasberg Coin
The Duckor Superb Gem 1903-S half dollar is tied with one other coin for second place in the Condition Census behind the incredible Eliasberg coin. It is a gorgeous, eye-appealing specimen with frosty mint brilliance. Ivory color at the centers changes to peripheral gold, blue-green, and iridescent toning near the borders. The reverse is similar to the obverse in overall appearance and aesthetic desirability. Trivial contact marks are mostly visible only with a magnifier.
In the Price catalog, David Akers wrote: "From a technical grade standpoint, this is certainly one of the finest known examples of the issue, and when the extraordinary eye appeal of the coin is factored into the equation, this specimen is at the pinnacle of quality, rarity and desirability for a Barber Half Dollar." Population (6/10): MS66 (4); MS66+ (0); MS67 (2); MS67+ (0); MS68 (1).
Ex: Dr. Thaine B. Price (David Akers, 5/1998), lot 159.

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.
