1814/3 50C MS66 NGC....
MS66, Finest Certified
This is a marvelous example of this popular Bust half variety. Radiant luster emanates from the surfaces that alternate silver-white and powder-gray, accented with dollops of pastel blue. As expected of the grade, there are no singular contact marks or other post-strike distractions. The strike is meticulous throughout. Considerable old die clashing shows on both sides. This single MS66 coin tops the certified population at NGC and PCGS and is finer than the finest examples, three MS65 NGC coins, in Stephen Herrman's Bust half auction reference.
Ex: Dr. Juan XII Suros Collection (Superior, 2/1999), lot 175.(Registry values: N1) (NGC ID# 24F4, PCGS# 6106)

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.
