Stone-White MS66 1861 Seated Half

1861 50C MS66 PCGS. Because of its mintage of close to 2.9 million pieces, the 1861 is relatively available in Mint State, although it is found much more often in VG and Fine grades. It is possible that the supply of better condition 1861 half dollars was reduced due to the circa 1879 Scott CSA dollar restrikes. J.W. Scott claimed that only 1861-O halves were used to produce the restrikes, but a Philadelphia example would have done as well, since the reverse (and any mintmark) was planed down to provide a surface for the CSA die. This brilliant Premium Gem certainly escaped such a fate, and it retains a freshly-coined, lustrous appearance. Sharply struck and splendidly preserved. Population: 11 in 66, 0 finer (10/06).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 24J7, PCGS# 6302)

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.
