Description:
Colorfully Toned 1905 Barber Half, MS67 PCGS
1905 50C MS67 PCGS. This is a coin for the ages, one that is both Superb in color and surfaces. Note the interplay of iridescent green, gold and russet spanning the obverse and reverse, which come alive when examined under a light. Luster peeks through as the toning is neither dark or thick. As to the strike, the finer points of the design elements are fairly clear, although we note a whisper of weakness on the arrow feathers. This is typical of the Philadelphia Mint coinage, which are generally well struck as opposed to most of the branch mints, where striking quality varies from year to year and coin to coin. While note a particularly rare date, the mintage of 662,000 pieces keeps this one in the scarcer than average class for the series. However, in this Superb Mint State condition, this issue is as rare as the lowest mintage dates, with a grand total of two coins graded this high by PCGS, and none finer (3/06). Housed in an older green insert PCGS holder and worthy of the finest Barber half dollar collection.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 24MR, PCGS# 6501)

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.
