Sharply Defined Superb Gem 1905-O Barber Half
1905-O 50C MS67 PCGS. The 1905-O is a widely recognized O-mint rarity among Barber half collectors. This is immediately apparent from its paltry mintage of only 505,000 pieces, most of which were poorly struck to start with, and most of the coins that survive today are found in less-than-Uncirculated condition. Any coin that is better than MS64 is an important offering and at the MS67 level this piece is among the finest six or seven pieces known.
Beyond its obvious absolute and condition rarity, this is simply a visually stunning coin. If one were to cover the mintmark this piece could easily pass for an S-mint, the mint luster is that thick and frosted. In addition, the surfaces are undisturbed by any trace of "improvements" over the past hundred years. Each side has a light addition of rich golden-rose toning with an occasional dab of cobalt-blue interspersed around the periphery. The striking details are also atypically well defined with sharp definition on both sides, only the slightest weakness is seen on the eagle's right claw and the juncture of the shield and right (facing) wing. An outstanding example of this important O-mint rarity and one of the highlights of the Hugon Collection.(#6502) (Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 24MS, PCGS# 6502)

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.
