Description

1855/54 Arrows Half Dollar, MS65
Guide Book Condition Rarity

1855/54 50C Arrows MS65 NGC. FS-301. The famous Guide Book variety that combines both a short-lived Arrows type with an intriguing overdate. Doubling on the 8 and a thin horizontal crossbar-line within the loop of the second 5 confirm the die. As might be expected for an issue that seldom appears in MS65 condition even as a Normal Date, the overdated version is a significant condition rarity as a Gem and valued as such. This MS65 coin has generous green, blue, and lavender patina across soft cartwheel luster. The obverse flashes at certain angles to the light, adding cachet to this well-struck coin. (NGC ID# 24JN, PCGS# 6282)

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.
