1904-S Barber Half, MS65
Notable Condition Rarity in the Series
1904-S 50C MS65 PCGS. In an August 26, 2003, Numismatic News article entitled "1904-S Barber Half Outshines Its Brethren," Paul Green writes: "For some reason, the 1904-S, in virtually every grade, is more costly than similar and much lower-mintage Barber half dollars from the period. One possible reason is the San Francisco earthquake of 1906. The banks where coins were stored were destroyed, homes and businesses were destroyed and the 1904-S had only been in circulation less than two years. Moreover, coins made back then in San Francisco tended to stay close to home. We cannot say with certainty, but the 1906 disaster is the one unique thing that occurred that can explain the higher prices of the 1904-S."

This MS65 piece has satiny champagne surfaces with freckles of light gray. The strike is uniformly sharp, save for minor softness on the upper right corner of the shield, the right (facing) claw, and adjacent arrow feathers. The piece has excellent eye appeal and is a coin that will enhance any high-grade Barber half dollar collection. Population: 3 in 65, 5 finer (6/13).

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.
