Superb Gem 1907-D Barber Half
Highly Lustrous and Eye-Appealing

1907-D 50C MS67 PCGS. CAC. As conditionally rare Barber halves go, the 1907-D gets little press. It is neither a particularly low-mintage date nor a heavily saved one. The 1907-D simply slipped through the cracks at the time of issue, and to a certain extent continues to do so. Nonetheless, PCGS has certified just three examples at that level and none finer (2/13). Heritage has auctioned all three of those coins.

The memorable FUN 2005 auction brought the first, the former Eliasberg Collection brilliant coin described as "a 'common' variety in a very uncommon state of preservation." The second appearance came at FUN 2009, the Dale Friend Collection Superb Gem, showing attractive blue and green-gold toning.

This piece is a repeat appearance of the third example, housed in an old green-label holder. Like its fellows, it is immensely lustrous beneath the patina, alternating untoned areas with light jade, golden, and amber hues. Though the strike is a tad soft on the stars, the eye appeal is exceptionally rewarding. A coin for the finest Registry Set.
Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2010), lot 2259, which brought $17,250.
From The Jim O'Neal Collection.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 24MZ, PCGS# 6509)

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.
