Challenging 1917-S Reverse Half Dollar MS66

1917-S 50C Reverse MS66 PCGS. The mintage of the 1917-S Reverse Walking Liberty far exceeds that of its obverse mintmark counterpart and it is seen with much greater frequency in lower Mint State grades. In Gem and better condition, however, both issues are particularly scarce. In fact, the number of 1917-S Reverse Half Dollars certified in MS66 by the two major services can be counted on two hands with a few fingers to spare. A quick check in our auction archives indicates that we have never offered an example that exceeded MS65. The coin offered is certainly deserving of its elite status. The impeccable surfaces exhibit a bright, frosty-white sheen and equally impressive sharpness. Surface marks are not only minimal, but trivial as well. Just a spectacular coin for the connoisseur of Walking Liberty Halves. Population: 7 in 66, 0 finer (2/04).
From the Nicholas Collection. (#6573) (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 24PU, PCGS# 6573)

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.
