Frosted Gem 1920-D Half Dollar
Impeccable Ice-White Surfaces

1920-D 50C MS65 PCGS. Ex: Dakota Collection. Gem 1920-D Walking Liberty half dollars may not be appreciated outside of series specialists, but the issue is an extremely elusive one on a par with some better-known members of the collection such as the 1919 and 1921. The present Gem example is one of only 41 submissions at this grade level at PCGS, surpassed by only six in MS66 (11/12). Radiant, frosty luster runs over ice-white surfaces that boast superlative eye appeal and few marks of any import. The bold strike over both sides is an added plus, and an interesting die crack appears on the reverse, running from the rim through TE to the top of the wing. For collectors who prefer their coins untoned yet completely original, this is not a piece that will be easily bettered.
From The Western Reserve Collection.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 24R4, PCGS# 6581)

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.
