Tied for Finest Known 1862 Half Dollar MS67

1862 50C MS67 NGC. The 1862 half dollar is an underrated issue in all grades. Its mintage of 253,000 examples is less than 10% of the previous year's production. As a result, this date has been hoarded and subsequently promoted because of its relatively small mintage. However, according to Wiley and Bugert, this has led to a "whiplash" effect, leading some to believe it is actually more common than believed. Most examples seen were part of the Guatemala Hoard, and cleaned as a result. This original coin, however, is tied for the finest example known. Struck shortly after the dies were lapped, this specimen's prooflike effect is intact, with bright, highly reflective fields. The strike is sharp in all areas, with brilliant surfaces except for a thin ring of dark russet and blue toning around the obverse periphery and a faint accent of the same colors around the reverse. Close to technical perfection: The only mark that can reliably be used as a pedigree identifier is a reeding mark in the right obverse field near Liberty's knee.(Registry values: N1) (NGC ID# 24J9, PCGS# 6307)

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.
