1916-D Walking Liberty Half, Superb Gem
A Spectacular Example

1916-D 50C MS67 NGC. The 1916-D Walking Liberty half dollar is the most commonly seen mintmarked early issue in the series, and certainly the most available of the D-mint coins before 1934. Even Gems are available with little difficulty. The pieces were produced with strong strikes and usually bold eye appeal, leading to the relative abundance of high-grade survivors. Premium Gem examples, however, are conditionally scarce, and Superb Gems such as the present piece are just downright rare. This piece is only a tad shy of a full strike, showing most of a partial split thumb and only minor weakness on the lower leg feathers of the eagle. The centers are ice-white, while the rims display a color palette ranging from copper-russet to saffron and pale jade. There are simply no abrasions worthy of mentioning. NGC has certified eight in the top MS67 grade including one MS67 piece (2/13). A spectacular example of this well-produced issue.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 24PM, PCGS# 6567)

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.
