Description:
Lustrous 1888 Seated Liberty Half, MS65
1888 50C MS65 PCGS. The low mintages of half dollars from the 1879-1890 era were occasioned by the requirements of the Bland-Allison Act of 1878, which mandated the purchase of vast sums of silver for coinage into Morgan dollars. Interestingly, for some dates, although not the 1888, Seated half dollar experts Randy Wiley and Bill Bugert document more than one die pairing--a surprising development considering the maximum annual business-strike mintage during that time was about 12,000 coins. The present example offers lustrous, untoned centers with a touch of russet around the rims. An especially clean example of this popular issue whose only noticeable interruptions in the fields are light die clashing. Population: 20 in 65, 20 finer (2/07).
From The Palakika Collection.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 24L3, PCGS# 6370)

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.
