Description:
1908-O Barber Half, Incredible MS68
Tied for Finest Known
1908-O 50C MS68 NGC. The 1908-O has the highest mintage of any New Orleans half and the second highest in the entire series (after the 1899), with more than 5.3 million pieces produced. Of course, as with all Barber halves, Gem and finer examples are seldom encountered. This piece and one other NGC-certified piece are the finest examples of the issue certified by either major service (6/12). This is also the famous (or infamous?) Mumps variety, with die swelling evident at the back of Liberty's neck. Also, an interesting die crack crosses the truncation of the bust, to near star 13. This is a highly lustrous coin -- notably so for an O-mint product -- and there are no reportable abrasions on either side of this exquisite coin. Both sides are layered in multiple shades of deep violet and sea-green. The striking details are strongly brought up on both obverse and reverse. Outstanding quality.
Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2005), lot 4251; Central States Signature (Heritage, 5/2007), lot 2140.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 24N6, PCGS# 6514)

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.

The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
