1814/3 50C MS66 NGC....
This Premium Gem is undoubtedly the finest known 1814/3 half dollar. It is the only MS66 example that NGC has certified, and the finest PCGS has examined grades just MS64. Stephen Herrman records three different MS65 NGC coins that have made recent appearances, including an example in our 2008 ANA Sale.
Fully lustrous grayish-gold surfaces with brilliant underlying mint frost. Splashes of bluish-green toning are found near the borders, increasing its already outstanding aesthetic appeal. A bold and well centered strike permits full borders and sharp design definition, including excellent hair details, complete stars, and strong feathers. A remarkable example that will capture the connoisseur's attention.

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.
