Impressive Gem 1837 Reeded Edge Half Dollar

1837 50C MS65 PCGS. CAC. All Reeded Edge half dollars were struck on steam-powered presses, using close collar technology that made the old lettered edge design obsolete. In 1837, the second year of the Reeded Edge design, a large mintage of 3.6 million half dollars was accomplished, making this date much more available than the scarce 1836 issue. The following year, the denomination on the reverse was changed from 50 CENTS to HALF DOL., creating a two-year type coin. The 1837 date is conditionally rare, with specimens above the Gem level seldom encountered.
The present coin is sharply struck with crisp detail on the central devices. Some slight weakness is seen on the upper stars. Spectacular luster shines through the multiple layers of iridescent toning, with gray-blue centers that yield to gold at the rims. Overall eye appeal is excellent. Population: 17 in 65, 7 finer (6/09).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 24G4, PCGS# 6176)

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.
