Rare Gem 1921-S Liberty Walking Half Dollar

1921-S 50C MS65 PCGS. Although both the 1921 and the 1921-D have lower mintage figures, the 1921-S Half Dollar has been recognized for several decades as the most difficult of these three issues at the Mint State level and has also acquired the reputation as the key issue in the entire series in top condition.
The present Gem example, housed in a first generation PCGS holder, is lightly coated in pale golden patina. Under this thin veil of natural color, the surfaces are quite frosty with especially clean fields and show virtually no blemishes. The strike is actually well executed for the issue if one keeps in mind the normal areas of mushiness on Liberty's head and the eagle's trailing leg feathers. Overall, this wonderfully preserved '21-S has solid Gem credentials and would be a terrific centerpiece for the advanced collector of this popular series. Population: 20 in 65, 2 finer (3/04).
From the Nicholas Collection.(#6585) (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 24R8, PCGS# 6585)

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.
